Aims and Scope: Archive of Applied Mechanics

The Archive of Applied Mechanics aims to disseminate  new results and methods of scientific research in the fields of solid and fluid mechanics, dynamics, vibrations and control. Mechanics of material, fracture and damage mechanics, material modeling in biomechanics, hydrodynamics and fluid-structure interaction are especially emphasized. Included are related disciplines, in a form useful to engineering practice. New analytical, numerical and experimental methods suited to research in the above-mentioned subjects are also welcomed.

The Archive of Applied Mechanics was founded as "Ingenieur-Archiv" in 1929 (Vol. 1) by R. Grammel. The title was changed to Archive of Applied Mechanics in 1991.
