Journal “Mekhanika kompozitsionnykh materialov i konstruktsii” (Mechanics of composite materials and structures) is published by the Institute of Applied Mechanics of the Russian Academy of Sciences from January 1995.

The journal is devoted to modern problems of composite mechanics and their applications in various structures and publishes the results of basic and applied research in the areas of:

  • mechanics of structured, non-homogeneous and heterogeneous media with complex rheological properties, phase transitions;
  • smart (active and adaptive) materials and structures, natural composites, and biocomposites;
  • diagnostics, damage accumulation, strength, stiffness, durability, and fracture mechanics of composites;
  • numerical methods in mechanics of heterogeneous media and mechanics of composites, computer modeling of the behavior of composites, averaging methods;
  • thermodynamics, physical and chemical mechanics, and micromechanics of composite materials;
  • properties of the fiber, matrix, interfacial layer;
  • calculation methods of composite structures, static and dynamic problems, interaction with environments;
  • methods of experimental research of composite materials and structures and aircraft structures;
  • mechanics of high-speed collision.

Articles from non-Russian sources are also published in the journal.
