IJMMP publishes contributions on mechanical, electrical, magnetic and optical properties of metal, ceramic and polymeric materials in terms of the crystal structure and microstructure. Papers treat all aspects of materials, i.e., their selection, characterisation, transformation, modification, testing, and evaluation in the decision-making phase of product design/manufacture. Contributions in the fields of product, design and improvement of material properties in various production processes are welcome, along with scientific papers on new technologies, processes and materials, and on the modelling of processes.
Topics covered include
- Materials'properties improvement, special properties, advanced techniques
- Mechanical/physical/nondestructive testing, characterisation
- Integrity after mechanical machining/heat treating/surface modification
- Creep/fatigue testing, failure analysis, fractures
- Surface characterisation, chemical analysis, microanalysis
- Precipitation/dispersion/strain hardening, dislocation interactions
- Deformation-induced distortion, structure formation in deformed metals/alloys
- Plastic/cyclic strain, quenching/distortion of steels, static/fatigue strength
- Analytical representation of creep curves
- Quantitative microscopy, particle size distribution, metal/alloy properties
- Chemical/heat treatment of metals/alloys, solute strengthening
- Polymers/metals/ceramics interface, mould/metal interface, casting/forging quality
- Laser/electron beam surface engineering/modification
- Solid/liquid interface morphologies vs solidification rate
- Microstructure formation modelling/evaluation, metals/alloys simulation
The objectives of the IJMMP are to establish an effective channel of communication between academic and research institutions and persons concerned with industrial research supported by practical application. It also aims at promoting and coordinating developments in the field of materials processing technology and materials testing according to microstructure and materials properties at macro and micro levels. The international dimension is emphasised in order to meet the latest needs of accelerating theoretical knowledge and practical verification of new technologies and products.
IJMMP is intended to help professionals, academics, researchers and policy makers, working in the field of material technology and materials testing, physical modelling or simulation of various processes in the materials, engineering education, to disseminate information and to learn from each other|s work.
IJMMP publishes original papers, technical reports, case studies, conference reports, book reviews, notes, commentaries, and news. Special issues devoted to important topics from the field of Microstructure and Materials Properties will occasionally be published.

Sensing carbon monoxide
23 October, 2020
Carbon monoxide is an insidiously toxic gas. It can pervade an enclosed space and causes drowsiness and at sufficiently high concentration is lethal to anyone breathing it. As such, there is a need for efficient and fast-reacting carbon monoxide sensor devices in a variety of industrial, commercial, and domestic settings. Devices are available but a new approach is discussed in the International Journal of Microstructure and Materials Properties that utilises the chemistry of a twin film of molybdenum(VI) oxide and indium(III) oxide layers [...]
