International Journal of Fatigue
Int J Fatig
International Journal of Fatigue is dedicated entirely to the full range of science and technology associated with fatigue. The scope of the journal includes the study, analysis, and modeling of fatigue and fatigue-related processes from the atomic level to global engineering behaviour, in all classes of materials and material systems. International Journal of Fatigue provides a timely forum for information and discussion for engineers, researchers, and educators that is dedicated entirely to the subject of fatigue. The technical integrity of the journal is maintained by an international Editorial Advisory Board of leading experts and by the review of all papers (including those in special issues and supplements) by at least two and very often three peers. Timely publication is emphasized (typically within 7-9 months); all papers are available electronically as part of the renowned 'ScienceDirect' on-line service of Elsevier. Typical subjects discussed in International Journal of Fatigue include the following: Degradation mechanisms (driven by mechanical, chemical, thermal, and other applied environments) Modeling (including fracture mechanics, damage mechanics, crack growth, kinetics, life prediction, damage tolerance, durability) Manufacturing and processing effects (associated with forming, machining, curing, initial defects, and residual stresses) Testing and characterization (including sensors, monitoring, methodology, interactive control, accelerated methods, data interpretation) Applications of all types (including structural integrity, design and maintenance). Combined and coupled behaviour such as creep-fatigue and stress rupture-fatigue is also included in the scope of the journal. The journal particularly welcomes review papers as well as suggestions for special issues either on topical areas in fatigue of materials or containing selected papers from international expert conferences. International Journal of Fatigue will present two annual awards: one for Advances in Fatigue and one for the Outstanding Paper in any volume. Related Conference The International Congress on Fracture is a series of meetings held every 4 years. The conference scope is sure to be of interest to readers of Engineering Fracture Mechanics, Theoretical and Applied Fracture Mechanics, International Journal of Fatigue, Engineering Failure Analysis, International Journal of Pressure Vessels and Piping, NDT&E, Journal of the Mechanics & Physics of Solids, International Journal of Solids & Structures, Mechanics of Materials and related mechanics/materials titles. All interested researchers in the mechanics and mechanisms of fracture, fatigue and strength of solids are invited to submit a paper to the next ICF and/or attend as a delegate.
