Engineering Failure Analysis

Engineering Failure Analysis

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.

Selected papers from the conference will be published in the journal Engineering Failure Analysis as a Special Issue. Authors who would like to submit their full length article to the Special Issue please select article type 'ICEFA2016' in Elsevier's online submission system EVISE from 7 July 2016

Please only submit your full length article to the journal if your abstract has been accepted to the conference as an oral or poster presentation.

Submission of full length articles will start at 7 July 2016 and the date for the last submission is 31 October 2016.

Engineering Failure Analysis

Case Studies in Engineering Failure Analysis

Case Studies in Engineering Failure Analysis provides a forum for the rapid publication of short, structured Case Studies in Engineering Failure Analysis and related Short Communications, and will provide an essential compendium of case studies for practitioners in the field of engineering failure analysis and others who are interested in the ways in which components fail.

The journal will not only publish new and novel case studies, but will also provide a forum for the publication of high quality descriptions of classic failures. The journal will generally not publish design analyses, materials science studies or failures induced during laboratory testing. The scope of the journal will include case studies of component failures in the fields of mechanical, civil, aerospace, mining, oil and gas, medical, electrical, transportation, power generation, process and forensic engineering, although failure of engineering components in other areas will also be considered.
