Dr. Sathasivam Karthikeyan is presently working as Professor in the Mechanical Engineering Department at Syed Ammal Engineering College, Ramanathapuram, Tamilnadu, India. He is having 20 years of teaching experience. He has produced three Ph.D. scholars and presently guiding 5 Ph.D. scholars. He has published 50 (SCI) and 26 (Scopus) research papers in International and National Journals. His specialized area is Thermal engineering, Biofuel, Engine, and solar technology. He received many funds from AICTE, DRDO, and TNSCST. He finished his doctoral research in Engine Testing at Anna University, Tamilnadu, India, in 2015. He obtained his post-graduation in Mohamed Sathak Engg. Madurai Kamaraj University, Tamilnadu, India, from 2004 to 2007 and earned a Bachelor of Engineering degree from 1991 – 1995 from the same college.


The main objective of this issue is to bring together scientists and engineers from all over the world to talk about how to characterise, analyse, predict, and assess fatigue and fracture in structural materials and components. It will serve as a platform for discussion of current and future trends in experimental, analytical, and numerical fracture mechanics, fatigue, structural integrity assessment, failure analysis, and other related topics. Multi-scale and multi-physics approaches to fatigue modelling and analysis, as well as their applications to new materials, were given special attention.
