  • Aims and Scope

    Aims and Scope


    The aim is to serve as the focal journal to disseminate original research and review articles addressing theoretical development of peridynamics and its modeling and simulation applications.


    Peridynamics, a nonlocal theory, removes the computational challenges inherent in the classical continuum mechanics, and enables the solution of complex governing field equations in the presence of jump discontinuities or singularities while providing a bridge between different length scales.  It presents the capability to address challenging problems across different disciplines such as failure of materials, multi-scale and multi-physics modeling, computational material design and its micro structural evolution, additive manufacturing, soft tissue modeling, reliability and optimal design, optimization, signal and image processing, digital image correlation, structural health monitoring, mathematical biology, geophysics and rock mechanics, by using high performance computing.
