This journal deals with the mechanics and applications of micro and macro structural changes that occur (or can be induced) in a wide range of solids. Such changes would relate to phenomena in metals, ceramics, polymers and biomaterials such as inelasticity, solid to solid phase transformations, buckling and similar instabilities that can be usefully exploited, growth, properties of multiconstituent materials, ageing, damage and time dependent effects..
