Composite structures are advanced in product efficiency, cost effectiveness, and superior in specific strength and modulus. There are increasing demands in their applications to load-carrying structures in aerospace, transportation, construction, and medical equipment. Thus, robust and reliable mechanical measurement and control of composites are essential to reduce safety concerns and maintenance costs for structural design. These include both destructive and non-destructive approaches. Destructive methods are based on the destruction of the state of equilibrium of composites, whereas non-destructive testing (NDT) and evaluation techniques include acoustic emission, ultrasonic testing, infrared thermography, terahertz testing, shearography, digital image correlation, as well as X-ray and neutron diffraction or imaging. Each measurement technique has its own strengths and limitations in achieving full-scale diagnosis of composite structural integrity.
In this Special Collection, we focus on the most recent cutting-edge research and advances in mechanical measurement and control of composite structures, include development of instrumentations and techniques, destructive or non-destructive testing of composites, multiscale failure mechanisms, as well as structural health monitoring, by all means of theoretical, experimental and numerical analysis. Original research and development on advanced manufacturing and characterisation of composite structures are also welcome.
We encourage the submission of original research articles, as well as review articles, covering all aspects of mechanical measurement & control of composite structures. We hope that this Special Collection will contribute in disseminating the latest progress in this field, as well as stimulating the interests of its audiences to work in this important and vibrant area to promote and benefit the scientific communities.
Potential topics for submissions include but are not limited to:
Process and development of mechanical measurement and control of composite structures
Advances in destructive testing (tension, compression, shear, and impact) of composite structures
Advances in non-destructive testing & evaluation of composites (acoustic, electrical, infrared, optical, terahertz, ultrasonic, or imaging techniques)
Multiscale (micro-, meso- and/or macro-scale) defect and damage evolution
Advanced manufacturing and characterization of composite structures
Finite element analysis
Integrity detection and safety assurance
Structural health monitoring
