Due to the wealth of its actual and potential applications in industry, computational mechanics is a highly active and rapidly evolving field. Initially based on finite differences and finite elements, available methods for computational mechanics now also include: boundary elements, finite volumes, spectral methods, element free methods, extended finite elements, large-scale complex analyses, involving e.g. transient non-linear dynamics. Current advances include adaptative and/or multiphysics simulations.
European Journal of Computational Mechanics aims to:
- publish original research on numerical methods and their application to the numerical simulation of mechanical, thermal, electromagnetic structures, systems, materials or fluids. Contributions dealing with multiphysics or multiscale problems are especially encouraged;
- present innovative applications to complex practical problems;
- foster interactions between modelling approaches in different areas;
- publish occasional review articles with a view of promoting an industrial culture in computational mechanics.
Any article presenting new theoretical concepts is expected to also provide either numerical validations, comparisons with experiments, or applications to real-world industrial problems.
