Structural Materials

Science and Technology of Advanced Materials

Back to Special Collections

Structural materials have a long history since the extensive use of iron and steels at the dawn of the Iron Age. Current research aims to improve their durability to environment, by preventing oxidation and corrosion during use, as well as ductility, strength and other mechanical properties; this research is growing through the integration of novel nanotechnologies. STAM has a traditional interest in advanced structural materials, as reflected in this special collection.
