IJCMSSE provides a blend of theoretical and applied study of computational materials science and surface engineering. Its scope includes original contributions on materials science and engineering, surface engineering, and computational methods of modelling, simulation and prediction for designing materials and structures at all length scales. The journal aims to address solutions to current engineering problems in which computational materials science and surface engineering methods must be applied, and to publish state-of-the-art reviews of current problems that will stimulate research.


 Topics covered include

  • Statistical/artificial intelligence methods, numerical techniques
  • Expert systems, genetic algorithms, neural networks
  • Process system design, engineering/materials/technological design
  • Mould flow analysis, modelling behaviour of materials
  • Materials/engineering databases
  • Computer-aided materials selection/design/manufacturing

More on this journal...

The objective of the IJCMSSE is to establish an effective channel of communication between academic and research institutions and persons concerned with industrial research supported by practical application. It also aims at promoting and coordinating developments in the field of computational materials science and computational surface engineering by publishing original scientific papers which describe computer-aided methods of modelling, simulation and prediction for designing new engineering materials and the technological processes of the manufacturing in materials that are used for solving problems posed by materials and surface engineering professionsals, industrial managers and administrators, and technical education personnel.


IJCMSSE is intended for a broad audience such as research professionals, scientists, academics, engineers, policy-makers, managers and students in the field of materials science and engineering, materials processing technologies and surface engineering.


IJCMSSE is a fully refereed, international journal, providing an international forum and an authoritative source of information in the field of computational materials science and surface engineering. It publishes primarily invited original high quality research and review papers, and features progress reports, short communications, technical reports, case studies, management reports, conference reports, and book reviews. IJCMSSE periodically also publishes special issues devoted to developments in important topics including selected scientific conference proceedings.

  • Silver nanoparticles by design


    A team in India has tested the antibacterial activity of silver nanoparticles generated in the presence of the common microbes Streptomyces species. They used ultraviolet spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction to assess the structures of the AgNPs. Electron microscopy revealed the particles to be spherical and 30 nanometres in diameter. The particles were active against Escherichia coli and other microbial pathogens. However, parallel tests against a laboratory breast cancer cell line showed them to be even more toxic against such cells and to open up the possibility of using such biological AgNPs in a new type of anticancer therapy [...]
