Settling of finite-size particles in turbulence at different volume fractions

We study the settling of finite-size rigid spheres in quiescent fluid and in sustained homogeneous isotropic turbulence (HIT) by direct numerical simulations using an immersed boundary method to account for the dispersed solid phase. We consider …

Numerical simulations of emulsions in shear flows

We present a modification of a recently developed volume of fluid method for multiphase problems (Ii et al. in J Comput Phys 231(5):2328–2358, 2012), so that it can be used in conjunction with a fractional-step method and fast Poisson solver, and …

Thermal shock fracture of an elastic half-space with a subsurface penny-shaped crack via fractional thermoelasticity

This paper analyzes a thermal shock problem of an elastic half-space with a penny-shaped crack near the surface based on a fractional thermoelasticity theory. The embedded crack is assumed to be insulated. The Hankel transform and Laplace …

Further results on Eshelby’s tensor of an elliptic inclusion in orthotropic materials

Explicit expressions for Eshelby’s tensor of an elliptic inclusion in orthotropic materials are derived in this paper. The main approach is based on the general solution for elliptic-hole problems in orthotropic materials. The derivation based on …

Variational modeling of plane-strain hyperelastic thin beams with thickness-stretching effect

Soft materials and structures have recently attracted lots of research interests as they provide paramount potential applications in diverse fields including soft robotics, wearable devices, stretchable electronics and biomedical engineering. In …

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.
