This Month's Introduction

This Month's Issue focuses on the CDCM 2006 - Conference on Damage in Composite Materials - held in September 2006 in Stuttgart, Germany. A collection of 31 review articles of authors who worked together in the Collaborative Research Center (SFB381) is available as Online-Proceedings in this issue. Another collection of 24 review articles is available as Book: Damage and its Evolution in Fiber - Composite Materials: Simulation and Non-Destructive Evaluation.

Aims and Scope
Detection and simulation of damage are interdependent fields of world wide scientific and industrial importance. Especially composite materials are increasingly used in all kinds of technological applications in a broad range of material combinations. Due to micro-structural heterogeneity of composites, complex failure evolutions need to be characterized, monitored, and considered for the prediction of strength and lifetime.
CDCM06 is intended to bring together scientists, researchers, industrial engineers and others from around the world to share their knowledge and experience on current developments in
  • damage and its evolution in composite materials like concrete, fiber reinforced ceramics, wood, MMCs, short fiber reinforced composites, laminates etc.
  • new approaches in NDT using elastic, thermal, electro-magnetic and particle waves,
  • applications of NDT-methods to composites, structural health monitoring and residual life prediction,
  • modeling and simulation of fracture, micro-mechanical behavior, impact and delamination,
  • physical aspects of fracture and
  • advances in industrial applications.
The conference is organized by the members of the Collaborative Research Centers (CRC) SFB 381, "Characterization of Damage Evolution in Fiber Reinforced Composites by Nondestructive Testing Methods". The aim of the joint effort of the CRC members, various European Universities, DFG and DGZfP is to raise the level of awareness on the latest developments for the benefit of the scientific community.
