International Applied Mechanics provides up-to-date coverage of studies on solid mechanics, general mechanics, and the mechanics of structural members (shells and plates), with reference to the stress–strain state, stability, dynamics, and wave propagation. Areas of special interest include the mechanics of composites, the mechanics of residual stresses, the mechanics of structures interacting with fluids and gases, etc. Papers published in the journal are also concerned with stability of motion, nonlinear dynamics, and rigid-body mechanics. The journal deals with practical problems commonly encountered by mechanical engineers working in the aerospace, shipbuilding, turbomachinery, and construction industries.
International Applied Mechanics is a translation of Prikladnaya Mekhanika. The Russian-language edition is published and copyrighted by the S. P. Timoshenko Institute of Mechanics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. The translation is published under an agreement with the Ukrainian Authors Agency.
The Russian Volume Year is published in English from April. All articles are peer-reviewed.
