The Journal of Multifunctional Composites is dedicated to identifying and publishing original work on multifunctional composite materials and structures. It welcomes analytical, experimental and computational studies of multifunctional composites covering topics such as design and manufacturing; processing and transport; characterization and properties; interface and damage mechanics; microstructural characterization; modeling and simulation; testing; performance and commercial applications.

Of particular interest are studies of composite materials that include the effects of statistical variability in microstructure and constituent material properties, bridge the length scales from the molecular to the macro scale, and consider performance under extreme environments that span quasi-static to ballistic strain rates and sub-freezing to very high operating temperatures.

Composite materials include synthetic, natural and biological fibers and particle reinforcements in polymer, metal, and ceramic matrices – and hybrid variants. While studies that address only a single functionality are also welcomed, of particular interest are biomimetic, self-healing, self-cooling, active morphing, functionally graded, nano, green and smart composite structures.


This journal is published in compliance with the COPE Ethics Guidelines.

The Journal of Multifunctional Composites provides an international platform to showcase the latest research into multifunctional composite materials and structures. Analytical, experimental, and computational studies that deal with topics such as design and manufacturing; processing and transport; characterization of physical, mechanical, electrical, chemical, magnetic, and acoustic properties; statistical variability in properties; interface and damage mechanics; microstructural characterization; modeling and simulation; non-destructive testing; durability and performance; and commercial applications are welcomed. Of particular interest are studies of composite materials that bridge the length scales from the molecular to the macro scale, consider extreme environments that span quasi-static to ballistic strain rates and sub-freezing to very high operating temperatures, and includes the effects of statistical variability in microstructure and constituent properties on the probabilistic performance. Composite materials include synthetic, natural, and biological sources of fiber and particle reinforcements within polymeric, metallic, and ceramic matrices, and hybrid variants thereof. Biomimetic, self-healing, self-cooling, active-morphing, functionally-graded, nano, green, and smart composite structures are also of interest, however papers addressing only a single functionality are also welcomed. High quality full-length research articles, review articles, short letters, and industry/trade studies will be accepted for publication after a rigorous peer review. It is the intent of the Editor to complete all reviews in a very timely manner so that the latest findings in the field can be rapidly disseminated.
