The International Society of Impact Engineering, ImpactEng aims to congregate engineers, scientists and policy makers to develop the field of impact engineering, applying it worldwide to the benefit of the society.
We are now inviting engineers and researchers to join us on this effort to form a society that will act as a focal point for discussions, event organization, dissemination of relevant information, links to journals and books, etc

International Journal of Impact Engineering
The International Journal of Impact Engineering, established in 1983, has as its objective the publication of original research findings related to the response of structures, bodies and materials from the exposure to impact and blast events. Pertinent areas encompass the following general topics and those associated with them:
Structural impact and failure
Energy absorbing systems
Dynamic material behaviour and failure
Blast loading and its effects on structures
High-speed mechanical and forming processes
Hazards assessments, safety and protection involving impact and blast loading
Testing/measurement techniques coupled with application
Energy Absorption of Structures and Materials
This important study focuses on the way in which structures and materials can be best designed to absorb kinetic energy in a controllable and predictable manner. Understanding of energy absorption of structures and materials is important in calculating the damage to structures caused by accidental collision, assessing the residual strength of structures after initial damage and in designing packaging to protect its contents in the event of impact. Whilst a great deal of recent research has taken place into the energy absorption behaviour of structures and materials and significant progress has been made, this knowledge is diffuse and widely scattered. This book offers a synthesis of the most recent developments and forms a detailed and comprehensive view of the area. It is an essential reference for all engineers concerned with materials engineering in relation to the theory of plasticity, structural mechanics and impact dynamics.
