A forum for discussion of modeling and simulation of systems involving particles and particle methods

  • Covers modeling and simulation of systems involving particles and particle methods  
  • Spans real-world applications in manufacturing, marine engineering and biomedical engineering  

 

GENERAL OBJECTIVES: Computational Particle Mechanics (CPM) is a quarterly journal with the goal of publishing full-length original articles addressing the modeling and simulation of systems involving particles and particle methods. The goal is to enhance communication among researchers in the applied sciences  who  use "particles'' in one form or another in their research.  

SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES: Particle-based  materials and numerical methods have become wide-spread  in the natural and applied sciences, engineering, biology. The term "particle methods/mechanics'' has now come to imply several different things to researchers in the 21st century, including:  

(a) Particles as a physical unit in granular media, particulate flows, plasmas, swarms, etc., 

(b) Particles representing material phases in continua at the meso-, micro-and nano-scale and   

(c) Particles as a discretization unit in continua and discontinua in numerical methods such as 

Discrete Element Methods (DEM), Particle Finite Element Methods (PFEM), Molecular Dynamics (MD), and Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH), to name a few. 

CPM will focus on the above topics.  We welcome works in a variety of applications including, but not limited to:  

(a) Particulate and granular flow problems motivated by high-tech industrial processes such as those stemming from  spray, deposition and printing processes

(b) Fluid-structure interaction problems accounting for free surface flow effects in civil and marine engineering (water jets, wave loads, ship hydrodynamics, debris flows, etc.),  

(c) Coupled multiphysical phenomena involving solid, fluid,  thermal, electromagnetic and optical systems 

(d) Material design/functionalization using particles to modify base materials, 

(e) Manufacturing processes involving forming, cutting, compaction, material processing,

(f) Biomedical engineering, involving cell mechanics, molecular dynamics and scale-bridging and  

(g) Impact resulting in fracture and fragmentation.

    For Authors

    Submission of a manuscript implies: that the work described has not been published before (except in form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture, review or thesis); that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere; that its publication has been approved by all co-authors, if any, as well as – tacitly or explicitly – by the responsible authorities at the institution where the work was carried out.

    Author warrants (i) that he/she is the sole owner or has been authorized by any additional copyright owner to assign the right, (ii) that the article does not infringe any third party rights and no license from or payments to a third party is required to publish the article and (iii) that the article has not been previously published or licensed. The author signs for and accepts responsibility for releasing this material on behalf of any and all co-authors. Transfer of copyright to Springer (respective to owner if other than Springer) becomes effective if and when a Copyright Transfer Statement is signed or transferred electronically by the corresponding author. After submission of the Copyright Transfer Statement signed by the corresponding author, changes of authorship or in the order of the authors listed will not be accepted by Springer.

    The copyright to this article, including any graphic elements therein (e.g. illustrations, charts, moving images), is assigned for good and valuable consideration to Springer effective if and when the article is accepted for publication and to the extent assignable if assignability is restricted for by applicable law or regulations (e.g. for U.S. government or crown employees).

    The copyright assignment includes without limitation the exclusive, assignable and sublicensable right, unlimited in time and territory, to reproduce, publish, distribute, transmit, make available and store the article, including abstracts thereof, in all forms of media of expression now known or developed in the future, including pre- and reprints, translations, photographic reproductions and microform. Springer may use the article in whole or in part in electronic form, such as use in databases or data networks for display, print or download to stationary or portable devices. This includes interactive and multimedia use and the right to alter the article to the extent necessary for such use.

    Authors may self-archive the Author's accepted manuscript of their articles on their own websites. Authors may also deposit this version of the article in any repository, provided it is only made publicly available 12 months after official publication or later. He/she may not use the publisher's version (the final article), which is posted on SpringerLink and other Springer websites, for the purpose of self-archiving or deposit. Furthermore, the Author may only post his/her version provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication and a link is inserted to the published article on Springer's website. The link must be accompanied by the following text: "The final publication is available at link.springer.com".

    Prior versions of the article published on non-commercial pre-print servers like arXiv.org can remain on these servers and/or can be updated with Author's accepted version. The final published version (in pdf or html/xml format) cannot be used for this purpose. Acknowledgement needs to be given to the final publication and a link must be inserted to the published article on Springer's website, accompanied by the text "The final publication is available at link.springer.com". Author retains the right to use his/her article for his/her further scientific career by including the final published journal article in other publications such as dissertations and postdoctoral qualifications provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication.
