Purpose and Scope:

The Journal of Applied Mechanics serves as a vehicle for the communication of original research results of permanent interest in all branches of mechanics. The majority of the papers published in the journal are full-length articles of considerable depth. Comments on published papers may be submitted in the form of discussion, which is subject to a rebuttal by the author.

All areas of theoretical and applied mechanics including, but not limited to: Aerodynamics; Aeroelasticity; Biomechanics; Boundary layers; Composite materials; Computational mechanics; Constitutive modeling of materials; Dynamics; Elasticity; Experimental mechanics; Flow and fracture; Heat transport in fluid flows; Hydraulics; Impact; Internal flow; Mechanical properties of materials; Mechanics of shocks; Micromechanics; Nanomechanics; Plasticity; Stress analysis; Structures; Thermodynamics of materials and in flowing fluids; Thermo-mechanics; Turbulence; Vibration; Wave propagation
