Elsevier Editors Play Key Role in Europe’s Leading Conference on Composite Materials

By: , Posted on: June 21, 2016


I am really looking forward to attending the 17th European Conference on Composite Materials (ECCM17) in Munich, Germany from 26th– 30th June, 2016.

The Conference is organized by the Institute for Carbon Composites of the Technische Universität München (TUM) and the leading-edge Cluster MAI Carbon under the patronage of the European Society for Composite Materials (ESCM). ECCM is Europe‘s leading conference on composite materials. As such the Munich event will follow the long tradition of the ECCM conference series with a wide scope of topics in composite technologies. The conference attracts internationally renowned scientists and engineers in the field of aerospace, automotive and mechanical engineering and will bring together the scientific and application-oriented world, many of whom are Elsevier Authors and Editors.

I am particularly excited about the key sessions that cover applications, materials and structural behavior, experimental techniques, manufacturing technologies, multifunctional and smart materials, and recycling and sustainability, and looking forward to attending the sessions that are given by Editors of some of our recent publications:

Professor Stepan V. Lomov, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium, Editor of Fatigue of Textile Composites will present a talk about Multi‐Scale Modelling Of Spatial Variability In Textile Composites: Uncertainty Quantification Based On Experimental Data Of Internal Geometry

Numerical Modelling of Failure in Advanced Composite Materials

  • Examines the most recent analysis models for advanced composite materials in a coherent and comprehensive manner
  • Investigates numerical modelling approaches to interlaminar failure and intralaminar failure in advanced composite materials
  • Reviews advanced numerical algorithms for modeling and simulation of failure
  • Examines various engineering and scientific applications of numerical modelling for analysis of failure in advanced composite materials

Philippe Boisse, Institut National Des Sciences Appliquées Lyon, France, Editor of Advances in Composites Manufacturing and Process Design will present a session on Composite Forming Simulations At Macro And Meso Scales

Advances in Composites Manufacturing and Process Design

  • Outlines the advances in the different methods of composite manufacturing processes
  • Provides extensive information on the thermo-mechanical behavior of reinforcements and composite prepregs
  • Reviews numerical simulations of forming and flow processes, as well as pultrusion processes and modeling chemical vapor infiltration

We are currently looking to expand our front-list of new titles and would seriously consider potential new proposals, so if you would like to discuss co-authoring or editing a new title for the series in your own specialist area of expertise, then please don’t hesitate to talk to me during the conference or contact me at

I look forward to meeting you!

Materials Science

The highly interdisciplinary field of materials science examines elements of applied physics and chemistry, as well as chemical, mechanical, civil, and electrical engineering. Nanoscience and nanotechnology in particular have yielded major innovations in this area, such as graphene and carbon nanotubes. Elsevier’s authoritative content in this area ranges from undergraduate textbooks to multi-volume reference works investigating the relationships between the structure of materials and their properties. Our journals (including Materials Today), books, and eBooks help researchers stay abreast of developments in this swiftly advancing field, coving major sub-disciplines like energy and power; metals and alloys; ceramics; composite materials; polymer science and biomaterials; interdisciplinary materials science; and structural materials.
