Aims and Scope
The SAE International Journal of Materials and Manufacturing publishes peer-reviewed, authoritative, and in-depth research in the areas of materials, design, testing, and manufacturing related to mobility and transportation. In addition to analytical findings, the journal addresses integration and implementation of scientific and engineering practices that advance the state of the art and benefit society. The journal presents and promotes wide-ranging research on the following areas:

  • Materials—such as materials development, analysis, modeling, and testing (including ferrous and non-ferrous materials such as plastic, composites, elastomers, casting materials, and additive manufacturing; coatings; welding/joints/fastenings; and tribology/bearings/lubricants)
  • Design—such as model-based system engineering, computer-aided engineering analysis/design process, reliability design/analysis, and optimization (including durability/fatigue/life cycle, crashworthiness and light weighting, forming, failure analysis, composites, multibody dynamics, computational gas and fluid dynamics, multi-discipline interaction, microstructure-mechanics-based technologies, uncertainty/model validation and verification, and multidisciplinary optimization)
  • Testing—such as duty cycle data acquisition and target setting techniques, accelerated life test, vibration shaker test, real time simulation test, and test planning, execution, and analysis (including non-destructive and destructive test methods)
  • Manufacturing—such as manufacturing systems, processes, simulations, and methodologies (including forming, joining, assembling, lean manufacturing, agile manufacturing, hybrid lean-agile manufacturing, and supply chain)
  • Reliability—such as design for reliability, reliability verification and validation, robust design and robust engineering, Design for Six Sigma, computer aided reliability design and analysis
  • Microstructural characterizations—such as experimental observations and theoretical modelling prediction, phase analysis, precipitation, reinforcement in composites, layer structure, optical, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, tomography, high-brilliance synchrotron radiation, neutron diffraction, internal stress analysis, phase-field simulations
