Heat transfer in a one-dimensional harmonic crystal in a viscous environment subjected to an external heat supply

We consider unsteady heat transfer in a one-dimensional harmonic crystal surrounded by a viscous environment and subjected to an external heat supply. The basic equations for the crystal particles are stated in the form of a system of stochastic …

On the capillary bridge between spherical particles of unequal size: analytical and experimental approaches

This manuscript focuses on the meridional profile of the axisymmetric capillary bridges built between two unequal-sized solid spheres. We propose an original method of resolution of Young Laplace equation based on inverse problem. The shapes of …

Thermodynamically consistent data-driven computational mechanics

In the paradigm of data-intensive science, automated, unsupervised discovering of governing equations for a given physical phenomenon has attracted a lot of attention in several branches of applied sciences. In this work, we propose a method able …

Quantitative analysis of deformation mechanisms in pantographic substructures: experiments and modeling

In order to get detailed information about the mechanical behavior of pantographic elementary substructure and elements, small-scale specimens were sintered using polyamide powder, constituted by three orthogonal pairs of beams interconnected …

Hybrid free energy approach for nearly incompressible behaviors at finite strain

We explore the formulation of nearly incompressible behaviors at finite strain in the context of a hybrid or a mixed energy. Such an energy is a function of both an isochoric deformation and a pressure-like quantity that can be considered as an …

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.

Künstliche Intelligenz und die Potenziale des maschinellen Lernens für die Industrie

Maschinelles Lernen ist die Schlüsseltechnologie für intelligente Systeme. Besonders erfolgreich ist in den letzten Jahren das Lernen tiefer Modelle aus großen Datenmengen – „Deep Learning“. Mit dem Internet der Dinge rollt die nächste, noch größere Datenwelle auf uns zu. Hier bietet die Künstliche Intelligenz besondere Chancen für die deutsche Industrie, wenn sie schnell genug in die Digitalisierung einsteigt.
