Aerospace Lab Journal 9 "Life Prediction Methodologies for Materials aand Structures"

Aerospace Lab is an electronic journal dedicated to scientific progress in aeronautics and space research.

Modelisation of a dislocation microstructure near a crack tip  

The life prediction of structures is a strategic research area that involves multidisciplinary approaches covering multiple size scales - from the nanometer to the meter- and thus involves a great range of physical phenomena. 

This issue of the Aerospace Lab Journal deals with research activities around the microstructure - constitutive behavior - structural lifetime links.  It contains contributions on:

  • dislocation dynamics and crystal plasticity
  • the explicit modeling of microstructures such as polycrystalline aggregates
  • the prediction of the macroscopic constitutive material behavior
  • the study of crack initiation and crack propagation phenomena under multiaxial loads
  • the modeling of the behavior of actual structures subjected to dynamic loads

The journal is available on

The issue 10, scheduled for December 2015, will be devoted to "Plasma for aeronautics".


The following topics are still available on the site:

  • Optical Diagnostics of Flows
