ÉPÍTŐANYAG - JOURNAL OF SILICATE BASED AND COMPOSITE MATERIALS
Építőanyag – Journal of Silicate Based and Composite Materials is the international journal of the Hungarian Scientific Society of the Silicate Industry (SZTE). SZTE is the oldest Hungarian research community for silicate materials science and technology, providing scientists, engineers and manufacturers with original research for over 65 years. First issue of the journal was published in 1949 in Hungarian and became soon the most important and mostly referred Hungarian journal in the field of construction and building materials. Today, Építőanyag – Journal of Silicate Based and Composite Materials publishes refereed original articles mostly in English to provide an international forum on both fundamental and applied science as well as on technology connected to ceramics and composites within and beyond construction and building materials.
Építőanyag – Journal of Silicate Based and Composite Materials publishes original research papers, review articles, case studies, short communications and letters dealing with all aspects of the science and technology of ceramics and composite materials.
The journal has several particular objectives. It intends to promote a better understanding of ceramics and composite materials on a wide range within and beyond construction materials, provide a forum for recent advances in materials science and review the latest developments of sustainable materials.
The fields which the journal aims to cover are:
- developments in the processing of materials and advancements in manufacturing,
- design aspects together with the progress in analytical methods and modelling,
- material properties and engineering performance,
- microstructural characterisation and focus on novel experimental techniques,
- applications and in situ behaviour,
- environmental influences and
- service life aspects.
Inorganic materials are in the main focus of the journal that covers ceramics, cements, concretes, natural and artificial stones, soil and rock, glass, mortars and bricks, ceramic composites, cement composites, reinforced concretes, recycled materials and by-products however, a wide range of organic materials also fits to the interest of the journal including polymers, sealants, adhesives, heat insulating materials, timber, organic fibres or bio-composites.
