Longitudinal Fracture Analysis of Inhomogeneous Beams with a Continuously Varying Height

Longitudinal fracture behavior of nonlinear elastic inhomogeneous beam configurations with a continuously varying height along its length is analyzed. The general solution of the strain energy release rate problem is obtained by considering the …


Effect of Pulse Current on the Wear Behavior of a Cold-Rolled Commercially Pure Aluminum Sheet

The aluminum sheet behavior after pulse current-assisted rolling was analyzed with hardness, abrasion, and other test methods. The hardness variations and wearability of aluminum sheets at different strain rates were evaluated. The microhardness …


Mechanical and Aging Properties of Polypropylene and Styrene-Isoprene-Styrene Composites at Low Temperature and Under Outdoor Conditions

Polypropylene (PP) and styrene-isoprene-styrene (SIS) blends with different mass fractions were prepared by twin-screw melt extrusion. PP/SIS was analyzed with differential scanning calorimetry, a universal material testing machine, capillary …


Nonlinear Mechanical Responses of Concrete Beams Reinforced with High-Performance CFRP Tendons

The nonlinear mechanical responses of concrete beams with carbon fiber-reinforced composite (CFRP) tendons were studied with the finite element model constructed within the nonlinear mechanics theory. The two typical prestressed CFRP-reinforced …


Precision Micromassive Forming of Microgears at Different Temperatures

The precision micromassive forming of microgears was performed at different temperatures with the combination of wire electron discharge machining and precision forging. Microgear molds with 0.1-, 0.2-, and 0.4-mm modules and 12 teeth were …

About this journal

Strength of Materials focuses on the strength of materials and structural components subjected to different types of force and thermal loadings, the limiting strength criteria of structures, and the theory of strength of structures. Consideration is given to actual operating conditions, problems of crack resistance and theories of failure, the theory of oscillations of real mechanical systems, and calculations of the stress-strain state of structural components.

Strength of Materials is a translation of the peer-reviewed Ukrainian journal Problemy Prochnosti. The Russian-language edition is published and copyrighted by the Pisarenko Institute of Problems of Strength of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.
