Research and Markets: Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part L: Journal Of Materials: Design and Applications Provides High Quality Fundamental Papers.

DUBLIN -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of Professional Engineering Publishing's new subscription "Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers The Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) is the British engineering society concerned with mechanical engineering. Overview
Vision statement: ''"Improving the World through Engineering".
, Part L: Journal of Materials: Design and Applications" to their offering.

The Journal of Materials: Design and Applications covers the usage and design of materials for application in an engineering context.

Aims and Scope:

The Journal of Materials: Design and Applications is a forum for communication of fundamental research and application areas in the field of materials. The whole range of materials engineering and technology is addressed, including metallic materials, polymers, composites and ceramics. In addition, metal matrix composites Metal matrix composite

A material in which a continuous metallic phase (the matrix) is combined with another phase (the reinforcement) that constitutes a few percent to around 50% of the material's total volume.
 and ceramic matrix composites are part of the portfolio.

The journal aims to provide the materials engineering community with high quality fundamental papers in the area taking into account particular design aspects and applications. The applications cover the whole spectrum of mechanical engineering including: automobile; railway; aerospace; pressure vessel Pressure vessel

A cylindrical or spherical metal container capable of withstanding pressures exerted by the material enclosed. Pressure vessels are important because many liquids and gases must be stored under high pressure.
 technology; turbine turbine, rotary engine that uses a continuous stream of fluid (gas or liquid) to turn a shaft that can drive machinery.

A water, or hydraulic, turbine is used to drive electric generators in hydroelectric power stations.
 technology and power generation generally.

The audience is those with a particular interest in materials engineering research and with a desire to see appropriate application of the materials in an engineering context. The readership read·er·ship

 therefore includes mechanical engineers with an interest in materials and materials researchers with an interest in the prospective application of their material. The mechanical engineering field covers those in industry, research and academia covering fundamental mechanics through to thermodynamics thermodynamics, branch of science concerned with the nature of heat and its conversion to mechanical, electric, and chemical energy. Historically, it grew out of efforts to construct more efficient heat engines—devices for extracting useful work from expanding  and fluid mechanics fluid mechanics, branch of mechanics dealing with the properties and behavior of fluids, i.e., liquids and gases. Because of their ability to flow, liquids and gases have many properties in common not shared by solids.  applications.

This journal is published four times a year.

Please note that an annual subscription runs from Jan-Dec each year. If you are subscribing after the start of the year, you will receive all previous issues produced since the start of the year.
