Aims and scope

The RCMA provides a premier venue for the latest scientific and technical developments in materials and their developments in the industrial world. Published since 1991, the journal has always focused on the materials and their evolution regarding to their potential applications. The main question has always been: what kind of materials for a given application? In this sense, the editorial board welcomes original papers that go from chemistry for the definition or the conception of new materials to structural mechanics to assess the lifetime of the structures made from these materials. The papers should highlight the physical mechanisms in the materials when loaded and the link between these mechanisms, the degradations and the mechanical properties. A special attention should be made on the characterization of materials.

The RCMA welcomes original research papers, technical notes and review articles on various disciplines, including but not limited to:

  • New materials
  • Structural mechanics
  • Chemical analysis
  • Lifetime assessment
  • Stress mechanism
  • Mechanical properties
  • Material degradation
  • Material characterization
  • Parameter identification
  • Numerical simulation
