Covers the general areas of dynamics of particles and rigid bodies and the mechanics of deformable solids
Offers a comprehensive record of up-to-the-minute research results
Articles are primarily theoretical and analytical in nature
The journal Mechanics of Solids publishes articles in the general areas of dynamics of particles and rigid bodies and the mechanics of deformable solids. At approximately a thousand pages a year, the journal is a comprehensive record of up-to-the-minute research results. Coverage includes Vibration of discrete and continuous systems; Stability and optimization of mechanical systems; Automatic control theory; Dynamics of multiple body systems; Elasticity, viscoelasticity and plasticity; Mechanics of composite materials; Theory of structures and structural stability; Wave propagation and impact of solids; Fracture mechanics; Micromechanics of solids; Mechanics of granular and geological materials; Structureâ€“fluid interaction; Mechanical behavior of materials; Gyroscopes and navigation systems; and Nanomechanics.
Articles in the journal are primarily theoretical and analytical in nature and present a satisfying blend of basic mechanics theory with analysis of contemporary technological problems.
Mechanics of Solids is a forum for original scientific research in dynamics of multibody systems and mechanics of solids and their applications. It contains articles devoted to recent progress in basic mechanics theory as well as in analysis of modern problems in engineering, material sciences, technology, geotechnology, medicine, etc.
