Advanced Composites

A section of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).

Section Information

Advanced composites are increasingly used in several industrial sectors such as transportation (airplanes, helicopters, trains, automobiles, motorbikes, bicycles), civil construction, electrical and electronic equipment, pipes and tanks, marine, energy conversion, and consumers goods. They play a key role in the development of lightweight structures with outstanding mechanical properties, high reliability, and environmental resistance.

This Section, “Advanced Composites”, provides a forum for rapid publication of original articles on the fundamental and applied science of engineering composites. Both experimental and theoretical works on the synthesis, design, characterization, and applications in different areas of advanced composites are welcome. Contributions are encouraged not only on traditional fiber-reinforced composites, but also on novel composites such as nanocomposites, biomedical composites, green/eco composites, composites for energy storage, bio-inspired and bio-mimetic composites, and multi-scale and multi-functional composites.

All manuscripts to be considered for publication in this Section will undergo a rigorous peer-review process and decisions are based on the recommendations of independent reviewers.
