Journal of Composite Materials

Journal of Composite Materials

Published in Association with The American Society for Composites

eISSN: 1530793X | ISSN: 00219983 | Current volume: 58 | Current issue: 16 Frequency: 30 Times/Year

Consistently ranked in the top 10 of the Thomson Scientific JCR, the Journal of Composite Materials publishes peer reviewed, original research papers from internationally renowned composite materials specialists from industry, universities and research organizations, featuring new advances in materials, processing, design, analysis, testing, performance and applications. This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

All issues are available online via SAGE Journals.

The Journal of Composite Materials is one of the leading journals of advanced composite materials technology and is ranked number nine by the ISI Journal Citation Report by impact factor for materials science, composites.

Now issued 30 times a year, the journal publishes fully refereed original research papers from internationally renowned composite materials specialists from industry, universities and research organizations, featuring new advances in materials, design, analysis, testing, performance and applications.

Issues of the Journal of Composite Materials collectively provide an encyclopedic resource on all aspects of composite materials science and engineering. Major areas covered include:

Analysis · Bonding · CAD/CAM · Ceramic-matrix composites · Coatings · Damage mechanics · Design of materials and components · Environmental effects · Metal-matrix composites · Modeling · Non-destructive evaluation · Polymer-matrix composites · Processing and manufacturing · Properties and performance ·Prototyping · reinforcement materials · Repair · Testing · Thermoplastic composites

Topics include theoretical and experimental findings on the physical and structural properties of high performance, multiphase materials. Both phenomenological and mechanistic approaches and their interrelations are emphasized. Fracture, fatigue, structural reliability, and design criteria are given special attention.

Applications of advanced composites are now increasing in military, industrial and consumer products. The Journal of Composite Materials, continues to be the leading medium for composite materials technology transfer.
