Complex band structure and attenuation performance of a viscoelastic phononic crystal with finite out-of-plane extension

To gain a complete view on the unique spatial attenuation phenomenon arising from the periodicity and the material viscoelasticity of the two-dimensional phononic crystals with finite out-of-plane extension, this paper presents a theoretical study …

A screw dislocation near a semi-infinite crack partially penetrating an elastic inhomogeneity of arbitrary shape

A novel yet simple method is proposed to derive an analytical solution to the interaction problem of a screw dislocation inside an elastic inhomogeneity of arbitrary shape partially penetrated by a semi-infinite crack. The two analytic functions …

Sequential elastic recovery stress edge-smoothed finite element method for lower-bound limit determination of structures

The paper proposes an efficient sequential edge-smoothed finite element (ES-FE) analysis method enhanced with the smoothed recovery stress field to determine the collapse load limit of inelastic structures. The approach applies a modified concept …

Dynamic behaviour of bidirectional functionally graded sandwich beams under a moving mass with partial foundation supporting effect

Dynamic analysis of bidirectional functionally graded sandwich beams under a moving mass with the effect of partial support by a Pasternak foundation is presented on the basis of a quasi-3D theory. The face layers of the sandwich beams are made of …

Theoretical study on the instability mechanism of flutter generated on a cantilevered flexible plate in three-dimensional uniform flow

The flutter of a thin flexible plate in uniform flow is an interesting theoretical problem in fluid–structure interaction phenomena, as well as an important engineering problem. Therefore, understanding of the instability mechanism is crucial to …

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.
