Numerical modeling of a composite auxetic metamaterials using micro-dilatation theory

Micro-dilatation theory of elasticity is the simplest special case of the micromorphic theory, assuming that the micro-deformation tensor has the spherical form. Recently, it was shown that the micro-dilatation theory can be efficiently used as …

Internal variables representation of generalized heat equations

Mathematical structure of generalized heat equations in rigid solids is analyzed from the point of view of internal variables theory. Internal variables are used for accounting for the influence of inner microstructure on heat conduction. It is …

Integrating molecular and cellular kinetics into a coupled continuum mechanobiological stimulus for bone reconstruction

The development of multiphysics numerical models to predict bone reconstruction is a very challenging task as it is a complex phenomenon where many biological, chemical and mechanical processes occur at different lengths and timescales. We present …

On the ageing behaviour of NBR: chemomechanical experiments, modelling and simulation of tension set

Rubber components produced from nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) are changing their material properties due to environmental influences. This is caused by irreversible changes occurring in the elastomer network which is known as chemical ageing. In …

A Cosserat–phase-field theory of crystal plasticity and grain boundary migration at finite deformation

In metallic polycrystals, an important descriptor of the underlying microstructure is the orientation of the crystal lattice of each grain. During thermomechanical processing, the microstructure can be significantly altered through deformation …

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.
