Founding Editor: Professor Chi L. Chow, Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Michigan-Dearborn, USA


The International Journal of Damage Mechanics covers new developments in the science and engineering of fracture and damage mechanics. Topics include: creep damage, low and high cycle fatigue damage, creep-fatigue interaction, brittle/elastic damage, ductile/plastic damage, strain softening, strain-rate sensitivity damage, impact damage, modelling and numerical simulation. Applications involving all engineering materials including metals, composites, polymers, ceramics and concrete. This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
