The Engineering Failure Analysis journal provides an essential reference for analysing and preventing engineering failures, emphasising the investigation of the failure mechanisms, identifying the failure's root causes, and proposing preventive actions to avoid failures.

The journal covers the following topics:
• Comprehensive critical reviews on failure mechanisms such as corrosion, environmentally assisted cracking, hydrogen embrittlement, creep, fatigue, wear, and structural collapse under extreme operation conditions and long-term actions. • Microscopic investigation of failure mechanisms in structural, functional and novel materials, additive manufacturing, electronic and biomaterials.
• Failure analysis of engineering components, structures or systems based on material characterisation coupled with computational methods, including bench tests, numerical simulations, artificial intelligence, digital twins and virtual reality modelling.
• Case studies detailing failures in major industrial sectors, including renewable energy, emerging fuels, power generation, oil and gas, transportation (aerospace, automotive, railway), mechatronics, biomedical, printed circuits and microelectronics, metallurgy, mining, civil constructions, and manufacturing.
• Investigation of public technical safety aspects involved in failure analysis and prevention, including examining regulatory agencies, legal considerations, codes and standards, environmental policies, public safety, ethical issues, and insurance.
• Role of engineering failure analysis in the design, materials, fabrication, installation, inspection, operation, maintenance, transportation, storage, life prediction, failure prevention, risk assessment, reliability analysis, forensic engineering, sustainability, service environment, process optimisation, structural integrity, safety evaluation and quality assurance.
