Forum for original scientific research on the flow, fracture, and general constitutive behavior of advanced technological and natural materials

Mechanics of Materials, a journal in the field of solid mechanics and materials, aims to disseminate research work in the broad spectrum of engineering and natural materials. It reports research with a mechanically oriented description of substructures from nano- to macro-scales encompassing spatio-temporal behaviors, material instabilities, damage and fracture mechanisms, and interactions between mechanics and multiphysics phenomena including electricity, magnetism, chemistry and optics. Particular emphasis is placed on the inspection of strain rates, spatio-temporal scales, inception of microstructural features and their evolution, and couplings between mechanics and transport phenomena.

The topics covered by the journal include:
Thermo-mechanical constitutive response of metals, polymers, soft materials, bio-materials, natural and geo materials, ceramics, metallic glasses, granular materials, composites, shape-memory alloys, nanostructured materials, etc.
Mechanics-based investigations on emerging areas such as 3D printing, additive manufacturing, bio-inspired materials, 2D materials, e.g., graphene and thin films, are encouraged. Articles that propose advances in combined experimental/computational/analytical approaches in the above fields are of particular interest.
