Mechanics of Materials supports the ICM-14 International Student Competition, which will be held in the conference in Santiago, Chile, on 12–14 July 2023. This contest aims to highlight the scientific achievements of students and encourage the development of their oral communication skills while presenting to a technical audience.
Mechanics of Materials is an international journal in the field of solid mechanics and materials that aims to disseminate quality research work in the broad spectrum of engineering and natural materials. It reports original research with a mechanically oriented description of substructures from nano- to macro-scales encompassing time-dependent and time-independent behaviors, material instabilities, damage and fracture mechanisms, and interactions between mechanics and electricity, 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.
SPECIAL ISSUES IN JOURNALS
Participants of ICM-14 are encouraged to submit their contributions to the special issue of the journal Applied Mathematical Modelling titled “Mathematical Modelling of the Mechanical Behaviour of Materials“. This special issue will collect selected full papers presented at the 14th International Conference on the Mechanical Behaviour of Materials, ICM-14. Further information about this special issue will be given in the coming weeks.
Applied Mathematical Modelling focuses on research related to the mathematical modelling of engineering and environmental processes, manufacturing, and industrial systems. A significant emerging area of research activity involves multiphysics processes, and contributions in this area are particularly encouraged.
Currently, ICM-14 organisers are planning to submit a proposal for the publication of the Conference Proceedings with Springer Nature. Only original research works that have neither been published nor submitted for publication elsewhere will be considered for this publication. In the coming days/weeks we will provide further information about this option.
