Finite deformation analysis of isotropic magnetoactive elastomers

In this study, the large deformation analysis of the magnetoactive elastomers based on continuum mechanics approach has been conducted. First, the governing differential equations for the spatial configuration are presented. Stored energy density …

Linearization for finite plasticity under dislocation-density tensor regularization

Finite-plasticity theories often feature nonlocal energetic contributions in the plastic variables. By introducing a length-scale for plastic effects in the picture, these nonlocal terms open the way to existence results (Mainik and Mielke in J …

Determination of horizon size in state-based peridynamics

Peridynamics is based on integro-differential equations and has a length scale parameter called horizon which gives peridynamics a non-local character. Currently, there are three main peridynamic formulations available in the literature including …

A model system of mixed ionized gas dynamics

The aim of this paper is to study a one-dimensional model system of equations for ionized gas dynamics at high temperature where the gas is a mixture of two kinds of monatomic gas. In addition to the mass density, pressure, temperature and …

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.
