Abstract

The 17th Asia-Pacific Conference on Fracture and Strength (APCFS 2022) was joined with the 13th Conference on Structural Integrity and Failure (SIF 2022) and took place in Adelaide, South Australia, from the 6th to the 9th of December 2022. Being globally affected by COVID19, the APCFS/SIF 2022 Conference has been run in a flexible format, i.e., a combination of conventional (face-to-face) presentations as well as online presentations via the Zoom platform in order to guarantee maximum safety as well as benefit for all participants. The conference attracted 181 delegates from around the world from those 148 participated in-person and 33 on-line. 158 presentations, including 5 plenary and 41 invited talks, were delivered during the conference. Besides the excellent technical program, participants had the opportunity to enjoy their stay in Adelaide, which is consistently voted as one of the most liveable cities in the world with its stunning architecture, vibrant cultural life, historical landmarks, and most importantly its beautiful untouched nature. This special issue contains twenty research articles, which have been selected and recommended to publication by the editorial team.
