International Journal of Materials Engineering

The International Journal of Materials Engineering strives to publish articles related to fundamental properties of engineering materials, mechanical characterisation, how they are controlled by processing, formed, joined and finished, and how all of these factors influence the selection and design of materials in real-world engineering applications.
