Notes for contributors



The scientific journal MEKHANIKA KOMPOZITNYKH MATERIALOV (Mechanics of Composite Materials) is a bimonthly periodical covering results of original experimental and theoretical investigations on the properties and behavior of composite materials and their constituents.

Particular attention is focused on the following problems:
  • failure and fatigue of composite materials (their types and cause, long-term strength, kinetics of failure at all its stages, mechanism of failure of contact regions between composite components, calculation methods, and technology for manufacturing materials with optimum characteristics of failure resistance);

  • methods of optimum design of composite materials and structures;

  • prediction of long-term properties;

  • aging problems and nondestructive testing;

  • mechanical aspects of technology;

  • composites in civil engineering and infrastructure;

  • mechanics of nanocomposites;

  • biomechanics.
