Aims and Scope

Strain is a long-standing international journal that contains leading-edge research on the measurement of the mechanical behavior of structures and systems. The journal includes publications from all engineering disciplines that deal with material behavior and degradation under load, structural design, and measurement methodologies in the field of experimental mechanics. Although the thrust of the journal is experimental, numerical simulations and validation are included in the coverage.

Strain welcomes contributions on novel work in the following areas:

experimental mechanics

stress and strain analysis

numerical analysis, simulation and validation

non-destructive evaluation techniques

impact behaviour of materials and structures

plasticity, damage, fracture, delamination


residual stress measurement techniques

signal and image processing

structural health monitoring

extreme environment

micro- and nano-scale testing

transducer and sensor design

structural health monitoring

extreme environments

fatigue and creep testing

transducer and sensor design

design of composite structures and components

advanced materials characterization

Strain has been founded by and is associated to the British Society of Strain Measurement (www.BSSM.org).


Digital Image Correlation, deformation measurement, stress analysis, strain analysis, experimental mechanics, composites engineering, plasticity and fracture, residual stress, high strain-rate testing, materials and structures, vibrational analysis, biomechanics, micro- and nano-mechanics.
