This is an international journal embracing a wide scope of topics concerned with Self-propagating high-temperature synthesis (SHS), the process for the production of advanced materials based on solid-state combustion utilizing internally generated chemical energy. Subjects range from the fundamentals of SHS processes, chemistry and technology of SHS products and advanced materials to problems concerned with related fields, such as kinetics and thermodynamics of high-temperature chemical reactions, combustion theory, macroscopic kinetics of nonisothermic processes, etc. The journal is intended to provide a wide-ranging exchange of research results and a better understanding of developmental and innovative trends in SHS science and applications.
The International Journal of Self-Propagating High-Temperature Synthesis (ISSN 1061-3862) publishes reviews, original papers, brief communications and letters to the editor on various aspects of the SHS:
  • Exothermic processes, macroscopic kinetics, combustion theory
  • New methods of research, scientific instruments
  • Kinetics and thermodynamics of SHS processes
  • Mechanics of SHS systems
  • Mathematical modeling of SHS processes
  • Structural macrokinetics of SHS processes
  • Nonlinear dynamics of SHS processes
  • Chemistry of SHS processes, chemical synthesis
  • Powder metallurgy of SHS products
  • SHS materials
  • Applications of SHS products in engineering and R & D work
  • Organization of SHS production (scientific aspects)
