ASTM Launches 2 Materials Journals

Friday, July 27, 2012

More items for Quality Control

Comment | More

ASTM International, developer of technical standards worldwide, has unveiled two new online journals focusing on civil engineering materials and materials performance.

Both Advances in Civil Engineering Materials (ACEM) and
Materials Performance and Characterization (MPC) are peer-reviewed and online only. Both journals are currently seeking original technical papers, review papers and technical notes.

A total of 17 papers have already been posted, and more papers will be added throughout the year. Both journals will also feature special issues focusing on particularly important topics in each of these rapidly changing fields, according to ASTM.

Advances in Civil Engineering Materials (ACEM)

ASTM describes ACEM as its premier civil engineering journal, covering all aspects of material processing, structure, properties and performance in civil engineering systems.

Advances in Civil Engineering Materials (ACEM)

The journal will publish technical articles on the properties and performance of materials such as concrete, asphalt, steel, polymers and polymeric composites, and wood for use in pavements, bridges and buildings, and related applications.

Core topics will include:

• Characterization, such as chemical composition, nanostructure, and microstructure;

• Physical properties, such as strength, stiffness, and fracture behavior;

• Steel;

• Constructability, such as construction methods, quality control/assurance, life cycle analysis, and sustainability; and

• Durability.

Papers may present experimental or modeling studies based on laboratory or field observations, ASTM says. The organization especially encourages papers relating to sustainability of engineering materials or to the impact of materials on sustainability of engineering structures.

Materials Performance and Characterization (MPC)

ASTM’s premier materials journal, MPC covers all aspects of material processing, structure, properties, and performance in engineering systems.

The journal’s papers address both the theoretical and practical aspects of the processing, structure, properties, and performance of materials used in mechanical, transportation, aerospace, energy and medical applications.

Materials Performance and Characterization (MPC)

These materials include metals and alloys, glass and ceramics, polymers, composite materials, textiles and nanomaterials.

The journal publishes articles on both qualitative and quantitative methods used to characterize materials, including all forms of microscopy, chemical analysis, and nondestructive evaluation.

Topics include:

• Integrity of materials in mechanical testing;

• Fatigue and fracture;

• Corrosion;

• Wear and erosion; and

• Integrity of components and systems such as rolling element bearings, piping and pressure vessels, fasteners, space technology and nanotechnology.
