On the boundary conditions in Lagrangian particle methods and the physical foundations of continuum mechanics

This paper aims to discuss the boundary conditions techniques employed in the solution of physical and engineering problems using the Lagrangian particle approach in continuum mechanics. Simulations using different boundary treatment techniques …

An implicit strong -conforming formulation for the analysis of the Kirchhoff plate model

In this work, we present a quadrilateral plate element for the Kirchhoff plate bending model that satisfies the continuity requirements in implicit way. The element is designed on the basis of the rational Gregory’s enhancement of the bi-cubic …

Homogenization of elastic materials containing self-similar rigid micro-inclusions

We consider elastic materials containing rigid micro-inclusions located along self-similar fractals. We use $$\Gamma $$ Γ -convergence methods in order to study the asymptotic behaviour of the structure with respect to vanishing parameters …

Ordered rate constitutive theories for non-classical thermoviscoelastic solids with memory incorporating internal and Cosserat rotations

This paper considers conservation and balance laws for non-classical solid continua in the presence of internal rotations ( $${}_i \pmb {\varvec{\varTheta }}$$ i Θ ) due to the Jacobian of deformation and Cosserat rotations ( $${}_e \pmb …

Continuum damage model for strain gradient materials with applications to 1D examples

In complex materials there exist different, often independent, mechanisms for the evolution of anelastic phenomena at the micro- and at the macroscale. Consequently, gradient plasticity has been introduced for a large variety of non-local …

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.
