Journal of the Mechanics and Physics of Solids
J Mech Phys Solid
Published/Hosted by Elsevier.
The Journal publishes papers reporting original research on the mechanics of solids. Emphasis is placed on the development of fundamental concepts of mechanics and novel applications of these concepts based on theoretical, experimental or computational approaches, drawing upon the various branches of engineering science and the allied areas within applied mathematics, materials science, structural engineering, applied physics and geophysics. The main purpose of the Journal is to foster scientific understanding of the processes of deformation and mechanical failure of all solid materials, both technological and natural, and the connections between these processes and their underlying physical mechanisms. In this sense, the content of the Journal should reflect the current state of the discipline in analysis, experimental observation and numerical simulation. In the interest of achieving this goal, authors are encouraged to consider the significance of their contributions for the field of mechanics and the implications of their results, in addition to describing the details of their work. Related Conference The International Congress on Fracture is a series of meetings held every 4 years. The conference scope is sure to be of interest to readers of Engineering Fracture Mechanics, Theoretical and Applied Fracture Mechanics, International Journal of Fatigue, Engineering Failure Analysis, International Journal of Pressure Vessels and Piping, NDT&E, Journal of the Mechanics & Physics of Solids, International Journal of Solids & Structures, Mechanics of Materials and related mechanics/materials titles. All interested researchers in the mechanics and mechanisms of fracture, fatigue and strength of solids are invited to submit a paper to the next ICF and/or attend as a delegate.
