Engineering Materials

Every issue of Engineering Materials includes a mix of regular sections and feature articles covering composites, polymers and plastics, metals and alloys. Bringing its readers the latest in material developments and innovation, the editorial approach starts with the process of materials selection, moves through design implications and benefits to potential new applications and products. It then considers manufacturing and process considerations before looking at the recycling and end of life issues.

Engineering Materials’ circulation is derived from MA Business’s market leading database. This database has coverage of all manufacturing and design sites within the UK and is updated continuously by our specialist data research team.

If you are trying to influence design or production engineers responsible for purchasing and specifying materials and materials process, then Engineering Materials is your ‘must have’ partner. If your plans incorporate display advertising, more complicated projects such as gatefold covers or bellybands, or if you require assistance in design, writing and layout of advertorial, Engineering Materials has the options to suit your marketing strategy and your budget.

With Engineering Materials’ editorial experience, creative routes to market and a circulation of 15,000 key decision makers, no one understands materials better or is in a better position to help you fulfil your company’s marketing aims.

Colour-changing silk composite sensor could speed composite development time

Published: 21 March 2017

Researchers at the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed a way to embed a nanoscale damage-sensing probe into a lightweight composite made of epoxy and silk. The probe, known as a mechanophore, could speed product testing and potentially reduce the amount of time and materials needed for the development of many kinds of new composites.

Scientists synthesise first sample of transparent silicon nitride for super hard windows

Published: 20 March 2017

Scientists at DESY (Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron) have synthesised what they claim to be the first transparent sample of a popular industrial ceramic. The result is a super-hard window made of cubic silicon nitride that can potentially be used under extreme conditions like in engines. Cubic silicon nitride (c-Si3N4) forms under high pressure and is the second hardest transparent nanoceramic after diamond but can withstand substantially higher temperatures.

Next-gen steel under the microscope

Published: 17 March 2017

Next-generation steel and metal alloys are a step closer to reality, thanks to an international research project involving a University of Queensland scientist. The work could overcome the problem of hydrogen alloy embrittlement that has led to catastrophic failures in major engineering and building projects.
