Purpose and Scope:

The purpose of the Journal of Vibration and Acoustics is to serve as a vehicle for the communication of original research results of permanent interest in all areas of vibration and acoustics. Papers published by the journal are full-length Research Papers of considerable depth. The journal also presents Technical Briefs, which are intended to serve as a means for the rapid communication of recent developments in an abridged form.

Examples of specific topic areas covered include: vibration of continuous and lumped parameter systems; linear and non-linear vibrations; random vibration; modal analysis; mechanical signatures; structural dynamics and control; vibration suppression; vibration isolation; passive and active damping; machinery dynamics; rotor dynamics and vibration; acoustic emission; noise control; machinery noise; structural acoustics; fluid-structure interaction; aeroelasticity; and flow induced noise and vibration.
