EFM covers a broad range of topics in fracture mechanics to be of interest and use to both researchers and practitioners. Contributions are welcome which address the fracture behavior of conventional engineering material systems as well as newly emerging material systems. Contributions on developments in the areas of mechanics and materials science strongly related to fracture mechanics are also welcome. Papers on fatigue are welcome if they treat the fatigue process using the methods of fracture mechanics.
The Editors especially solicit contributions which synthesize experimental and theoretical-computational studies yielding results with direct engineering significance.
Engineering Fracture Mechanics Special Issue The instructions about the special issue in Engineering Fracture Mechanics will be given at the conference. It will include the timescale for submission to the special issue. The format will be as used by Engineering Fracture Mechanics.
