    About this Journal

    The journal is published continuously in one annual issue online. Papers are published online as they are approved and edited. Special Issues may also be published on specific topics of interest to our readers.

    Materials Performance and Characterization (MPC) provides high-quality papers on both the theoretical and practical aspects of the processing, structure, properties, and performance of materials used in:

    • mechanical
    • transportation
    • aerospace
    • energy and
    • medical devices.

    Materials Covered: (but not limited to)

    • Metals and alloys
    • Glass and ceramics
    • Polymers
    • Composite materials
    • Textiles and nanomaterials

    Topics Covered:

    • Integrity of materials in mechanical testing
    • Fatigue and fracture
    • Corrosion
    • Wear and erosion
    • Integrity of components and systems such as:
      • Rolling element bearings
      • Piping and pressure vessels
      • Fasteners
      • Space technology
