Introduction of the special issue

When cracks are detected in structural components, assessments are needed to determine the cause of crack formation, the remaining life of the component containing the crack, whether the cracks should be removed from the components for continued operation, or whether repair/replacement of the component is required. Multiple discrete cracks are often detected in actual components, and the assessment for the component containing multiple cracks are not easy compared with the component containing a single cracks because of interaction of adjacent cracks. We intend to invite leading research scientists in this interaction of multiple cracks to submit original research and comprehensive review articles for consideration for publication in a special issue “interaction of multiple cracks in structural components” in the AIMS Materials Science.

The target topics include local stress-strain, fatigue, creep and fracture behaviours for coplanar cracks, offset cracks and an imbedded crack near free surface, in addition with boundary criterion on interfering or standalone cracks (but are not limited to).

The articles will be published in AIMS Materials Science open access free of charge. Submitted papers should not have been previous published nor be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. All manuscript will be peer-reviewed before their acceptance for publication.
