Aims & Scope

Today's products and their constituent components and structures have to meet increasingly stringent requirements during operation. The economic and human costs of failure during service impose a great responsibility on organisations and individuals who develop new materials and those who select and integrate materials in a final engineering design. A critical feature of successful product development is the judicious selection of the best material or materials, based on an informed awareness of the capabilities and opportunities afforded by all candidate materials, coupled with a design that takes full advantage of those capabilities.

The aim of Materials & Design is to promote a greater knowledge and understanding of the attributes and capabilities of all types of modern engineering materials in the context of engineering design.

Materials & Design publishes a range of high quality peer reviewed research articles including full papers, short communications and technical reports, and occasional special issues, that investigate the properties of materials that influence or control any practical design. All types of engineering material are addressed including metals, ceramics and glasses, polymers and elastomers, and composites, and all scales of design application from micro-machinery to large structural components. The content is broad and relevant to materials researchers, engineers and designers in academia and in industry.

The technical level is postgraduate but not specialist, with an emphasis on developing practice rather than theory, for the field of materials engineering in preference to science, making appropriate links to processing. To reflect the multidisciplinary nature of design, submissions to Materials & Design should also be understandable and offer information useful to professionals working in fields outside but related to the immediate subject of the article.


Design engineers, consulting engineers, project managers, materials researchers, and technical managers.
