Elsevier Series in Mechanics of Advanced Materials

Aim & scope

The Mechanics of Advanced Materials book series focuses on materials- and mechanics-related issues around the behavior of advanced materials, including the mechanical characterization, mathematical modelling, and numerical simulations of material response to mechanical loads, various environmental factors (temperature changes, electromagnetic fields, etc.) as well as novel applications of advanced materials and structures.

Sample cover of Mechanics of Advanced Materials

Volumes in the series cover advanced materials topics and numerical analysis of their behaviour, bringing together knowledge of material behaviour and the tools of mechanics that can be used to better understand and predict materials behaviour. It presents new trends in experimental, theoretical, and numerical results concerning advanced materials, and provides regular reviews to aid readers in identifying the main trends in research in order to facilitate the adoption of these new and advanced materials in a broad range of applications. Vadim Silberschmidt (Loughborough University, UK) serves as Series Editor-in-Chief, with Thomas Böhlke (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany), David McDowell (Georgia Institute of Technology, USA), and Chen Zhong (Nanyang Technological University, Singapore) serving as Series Editors. If you would like to be involved in The Mechanics of Advanced Materials series, please contact Dennis McGonagle, Senior Acquisitions Editor ([email protected]opens in new tab/window).


  • Academic researchers in mechanics of advanced materials (postgraduate and beyond)
