OF APPLIED MECHANICS
The purpose of the
Journal of Applied Mechanics is to serve as a vehicle for the communication of
original research results of permanent interest in all branches of mechanics.
The majority of the papers published the journal are full length articles of
considerable depth. Another important format is the Brief Note, which is
intended to serve as a means for the rapid communication of recent developments
in an abridged form. Comments on published papers may be submitted in the form
of discussion, which is subject to a rebuttal by the author.
The Journal also lists
and publishes scholarly reviews of new books on mechanics and related areas.
Technical areas covered include: aerodynamics; aeroelasticity; boundary layers;
computationalmechanics; constitutive modeling of materials; dynamics;
elasticity; flow and fracture; heat transfer; hydraulics; impact; internal flow;
mechanical properties of materials; micromechanics; plasticity; stress analysis;
structures; thermodynamics; turbulence; vibration; and wavepropagation.
