Purpose and Scope:
Archival papers for this journal must not only be clearly written and demonstrated to be technically correct, but must also present new, previously unknown findings that are interesting, have lasting value for referencing and educating future generations, and have a relevant engineering application for the technical areas of the journal. "Application" means demonstrating that the innovations or ideas, the computational and/or experimental results, the modeling and analyses of systems, components or processes are useful to improve understanding and advance the state-of-the-art. Emphasis should be on demonstrated engineering relevance. This can take the form of new technologies, processes, concepts, theories, ideas, analyses and experiments that improve engineering designs, clarify understanding of technical issues facing the community, explain previously unexplained phenomena, and/or change the way we think.
We also welcome interesting technology review papers and discussions of published papers. The submission of papers that are only of mathematical interest with just a cursory relevance to engineering are discouraged.
