Strain is an international journal that contains contributions from leading-edge research on the measurement of the mechanical behaviour of structures and systems. Strain updates engineers and scientists with new developments in measurement and current research activities. The journal includes papers from all engineering disciplines that deal with material behaviour and degradation under load, structural design and measurement techniques. Although the thrust of the journal is experimental, numerical simulations and validation are included in the coverage.

Strain welcomes papers that deal with novel work in the following areas:

  • experimental techniques
  • non-destructive evaluation techniques
  • numerical analysis, simulation and validation
  • residual stress measurement techniques
  • design of composite structures and components
  • impact behaviour of materials and structures
  • signal and image processing
  • transducer and sensor design
  • structural health monitoring
  • biomechanics
  • high temperature applications
