MECHANICS AND THERMODYNAMICS
The journal reports on new developments in continuum mechanics and
thermodynamics and their relevance to materials in geophysics, and in the
environment. It encourages papers that describe new observed phenomena and
presents - for their interpretation and simulation - models based on the
principles of mechanics, thermodynamics, and statistical mechanics.
Apart from original contributions, review articles will occasionally be
invited, preferably on topics emphasizing the geophysical and environmental
aspects and on new techniques for the description of material behaviour or on
experiments or observations supporting theoretical concepts.
The journal is aimed at engineers, physicists, natural scientists and applied
