About this Research Topic

Manuscript Submission Deadline 30 November 2022

High performance fiber-reinforced composites, including polymer-matrix composites (PMCs), ceramic-matrix composites (CMCs), and metal-matrix composites (MMCs), have already been used in a wide range of applications in aerospace, transportation, and nuclear industry, etc. These composites possess high specific strength and stiffness, low density, and high resistance to fatigue, and corrosion. To ensure the operation reliability and safety of these composite components in application, it is necessary to understand the damage, fracture and fatigue behavior under loading.

The aim of the Research Topic is to address recent developmental activities for the engineering application of PMCs, CMCs, and MMCs. The operational issues, including, design and fabrication, mechanical behavior including tensile, fatigue, creep, and vibration, damage monitoring and life prediction, components design and NDT detection (such as, acoustic emission (AE), electrical resistance (ER), digital image correlation (DIC), and X-ray computed tomography (XCT)), et al., are welcomed for submission to this Research Topic. Multiscale modeling for composites and components from damage initiation to propagation to final fracture is also welcomed. Original Research and Reviews articles dealing with composites for damage monitoring, damage mechanisms, damage models, failure and fracture criterion, fatigue damage accumulation, and fatigue lifetime prediction are sought.

Topics addressed in this Research Topic may include, but are not limited to:
• Design and fabrication of fiber-reinforced polymer/ceramic/metal matrix composites.
•Experimental investigation on the damage, fracture and fatigue in fiber-reinforced polymer/ceramic/metal matrix composites.
• Multiscale modeling of damage, fracture and fatigue in fiber-reinforced polymer/ceramic/metal matrix composites.
• Damage monitoring of fiber-reinforced polymer/ceramic/metal matrix composites.
• Design and analysis of composite structure or components.

Keywords: Lightweight materials, Damage, Stress analysis, Creep, Fatigue, Fracture Modelling, Additive manufacturing


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
