Cracked elastic layer with surface elasticity under antiplane shear loading

A mode-III crack embedded in a homogeneous isotropic elastic layer of nanoscale finite thickness is studied in this article. The classical elasticity incorporating surface elasticity is employed to reduce a nonclassical mixed boundary value …

In-plane and out-of-plane tensile behaviour of single-layer graphene sheets: a new interatomic potential

This paper compares simple interatomic potentials for carbon nanostructures with hexagonal lattice, by investigating the in-plane and the out-of-plane tensile behaviour of single-layer graphene sheets. Attention is given both to potentials already …

Band structure analysis of wave propagation in piezoelectric nano-metamaterials as periodic nano-beams considering the small scale and surface effects

This paper investigates the bandgap properties of a piezoelectric periodic nano-beam considering size and surface effects using a modified couple stress theory. The nano-beam is made of some finite periodic arrays of piezoelectric (PZT-5H) and …

Thermoelastic damping analysis in microbeam resonators based on Moore–Gibson–Thompson generalized thermoelasticity theory

Microbeam resonators are widely used due to their scientific and engineering applications. The accurate prediction of thermoelastic damping (TED) is necessary to evaluate the performance of resonators at micro- and nanoscales with less energy …

Noether symmetries for fractional generalized Birkhoffian systems in terms of classical and combined Caputo derivatives

In this paper, we research Noether’s theorems of fractional generalized Birkhoffian systems in terms of classical and combined Caputo derivatives. First, the generalized Pfaff–Birkhoff principle and Birkhoff’s equations with classical and combined …

Über diese Zeitschrift

Since 1965, the international journal Acta Mechanica has been among the leading journals in the field of theoretical and applied mechanics. In addition to the fields of solid and fluid mechanics, such as elasticity, plasticity, vibrations and control, structures, multi-body dynamics, hydrodynamics, gasdynamics and multiphase flows, it also gives special attention to areas such as Non-Newtonian fluid dynamics, micro- and nanomechanics of fluids and solids, smart materials and structures, biomechanics of solids and fluids, and novel issues at the interface of mechanics and materials.
The journal further publishes papers in such related fields as rheology, thermodynamics, and electromagnetic interactions with fluids and solids. Acta Mechanica emphasizes originality in all aspects of theoretical, experimental, and computational mechanics that are of lasting value and of current interest. Acta Mechanica will also publish special issues and editor-invited Reviews and Perspectives.
