The conference series has the support of the experts in the field of fracture and damage
mechanics and has become established as a leading international forum for
presentation latest research. The high quality researches presented at the previous
meetings are archived in conference proceedings published in book form. In addition
special issues in leading journals such as International Journal of Fracture, Engineering
Fracture Mechanics and Key Engineering Materials have been devoted to the work
presented at the meeting.
The proceedings one the 20th international conference will be by the American Institute
of Physics, AIP Proceedings (Indexed in leading databases — Web of Science, Scopus,
and Inspec). distributed to the delegates at the conference.
