ICEFA SPECIAL ISSUE
Full papers are invited for the conference Special Issue and we ask authors to submit their full papers to the journal Engineering Failure Analysis by 31st October 2018. Submission will be via the Evise website and if you wish the paper to be considered as part of the Special Issue, make sure that you submit the paper using the appropriate Article Type (ICEFA 2018). This will enable the organising committee to have the papers refereed and finalised for publication as a Special Issue of Engineering Failure Analysis in 2019. The organisers are grateful to the authors for their enthusiasm and in advance to all the reviewers for their work and time given to evaluate the volunteered submissions in detail.
Published in Affiliation with the European Structural Integrity Society
Engineering Failure Analysis publishes research papers describing the analysis of engineering failures and related studies.
Papers relating to the structure, properties and behaviour of engineering materials are encouraged, particularly those which also involve the detailed application of materials parameters to problems in engineering structures, components and design. In addition to the area of materials engineering, the interacting fields of mechanical, manufacturing, aeronautical, civil, chemical, corrosion and design engineering are considered relevant. Activity should be directed at analysing engineering failures and carrying out research to help reduce the incidences of failures and to extend the operating horizons of engineering materials.
Emphasis is placed on the mechanical properties of materials and their behaviour when influenced by structure, process and environment. Metallic, polymeric, ceramic and natural materials are all included and the application of these materials to real engineering situations should be emphasised. The use of a case-study based approach is also encouraged.
Engineering Failure Analysis provides essential reference material and critical feedback into the design process thereby contributing to the prevention of engineering failures in the future. All submissions will be subject to peer review from leading experts in the field.
