Unsteady thermal transport in an instantly heated semi-infinite free end Hooke chain

We consider unsteady ballistic heat transport in a semi-infinite Hooke chain with free end and arbitrary initial temperature profile. An analytical description of the evolution of the kinetic temperature is proposed in both discrete (exact) and …

Discrete and continuous models of linear elasticity: history and connections

This paper tracks the development of lattice models that aim to describe linear elasticity of solids and the field equations of which converge asymptotically toward those of isotropic continua, thus showing the connection between discrete and …

Thermodynamic theory of the most energy-efficient natural repose angle

This paper describes the formation of the natural repose angle of non-cohesive bulk materials. The repose angle of particulates $$\alpha $$ α is the angle between the tangent plane to the surface of the slope and the solid base. The paper presents …

Structures of longitudinal-torsional shock waves and special discontinuities in nonlinearly viscoelastic media with dispersion

Weakly nonlinear longitudinal-torsional waves in rods are considered. The structure of discontinuities in the solutions of the hyperbolic system of equations describing these waves is studied. Previously, the authors studied discontinuity …

A multiphase phase-field study of three-dimensional martensitic twinned microstructures at large strains

The nanoscale multiphase phase-field model for stress and temperature-induced multivariant martensitic transformation under large strains developed by the authors in Basak and Levitas (J Mech Phys Solids 113:162–196, 2018) is revisited, the issues …

Über diese Zeitschrift

Continuum Mechanics and Thermodynamics is an interdisciplinary journal exploring new ideas in continuum and quasi-continuum modeling of systems with a large number of degrees of freedom and sufficient complexity to require thermodynamic closure.

Major emphasis is placed on papers seeking to bridge the gap between discrete and continuum approaches as well as micro and macro scales, by means of homogenization, statistical averaging, and other mathematical tools aimed at the judicial elimination of small time and length scales. In particular, the journal focuses on simultaneous descriptions of complex systems at several disparate scales. Papers presenting and explaining new experimental findings are highly encouraged. Lastly, the journal publishes numerical studies that build our understanding of the physical nature of phenomena.

In addition to research papers, the journal features invited review articles, short communications, and "comment-and-reply" on published papers.
