Computational Mechanics (journal)
2012-06-04 15:29:14

Computational Mechanics is a scientific journal founded in 1986 and published monthly by Springer. The journal covers all aspects of computational mechanics and reports original research in the field. It focuses on areas that involve the rational application of mechanics, mathematics, and numerical methods in the practice of modern engineering. Areas covered include solid and structural mechanics, multi-body system dynamics, constitutive modeling, inelastic and finite deformation response,...
