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.
