I have been invited as Guest Editor for a Special Issue of Materials on “Fatigue Properties and Damage Mechanisms of Polymeric Composites”. Both “fatigue” and “damage mechanisms” of polymeric composites are “open” chapters within the area of materials engineering and science, and many issues around these subjects are debated. These include, but are not limited to, fatigue under constant and variable amplitude loadings, responses of laminates under low-velocity impact loading, the effects of temperature and frequency under dynamic loadings. Contributions on the above and related subjects from both the theoretical and the phenomenological point of view are welcome. However, circumventing the subject complexity requires multidisciplinary approaches from both academic and industrial researchers, and this is the reason why mechanical and aerospace engineers and materials scientists are kindly invited to contribute to this Special Issue.My Best Regards
Prof. Alberto D'Amore
Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
