Journal description and aims
Frattura ed IntegritÓ Strutturale (Fracture and Structural Integrity) is the official Journal of the Italian Group of Fracture (ISSN 1971-8993; Reg. Trib. di Cassino n. 729/07, 30/07/2007). It is an open-access Journal published on-line every three months (July, October, January, April).
Frattura ed IntegritÓ Strutturale encompasses the broad topic of structural integrity, which is based on the mechanics of fatigue and fracture, and is concerned with the reliability and effectiveness of structural components. The aim of the Journal is to promote works and researches on fracture phenomena, as well as the development of new materials and new standards for structural integrity assessment. The Journal is interdisciplinary and accepts contributions from engineers, metallurgists, materials scientists, physicists, chemists, and mathematicians.Image
Frattura ed IntegritÓ Strutturale is a medium for rapid dissemination of original analytical, numerical and experimental contributions on fracture mechanics and structural integrity. Research works which provide improved understanding of the fracture behaviour of conventional and innovative engineering material systems are welcome. Technical notes, letters and review papers may also be accepted depending on their quality. Special issues containing full-length papers presented during selected conferences or symposia are also solicited by the Editorial Board.
