Bulging intervertebral disc: an asymptotic elasticity solution

A bulging intervertebral disc (IVD) occurs when pressure on a spinal disc damages the once healthy disc, causing it to compress or change its normal shape. In medicine, most attention has been paid clinically to diagnosis of and treatment for such …

Buckling analysis of functionally graded plates partially resting on elastic foundation using the differential quadrature element method

We extend the differential quadrature element method (DQEM) to the buckling analysis of uniformly in-plane loaded functionally graded (FG) plates fully or partially resting on the Pasternak model of elastic support. Material properties of the FG …

A novel static shape-adjustment technique for planar phased-array satellite antennas

Planar phased-array satellite antennas deform when subjected to external disturbances such as thermal gradients or slewing maneuvers. Such distortion can degrade the coherence of the antenna and must therefore be eliminated to maintain …

Band gap analysis of periodic structures based on cell experimental frequency response functions (FRFs)

An approach is proposed to estimate the transfer function of the periodic structure, which is known as an absorber due to its repetitive cells leading to the band gap phenomenon. The band gap is a frequency range in which vibration will be …

A numerical study for WENO scheme-based on different lattice Boltzmann flux solver for compressible flows

In this paper, the finite difference weighted essentially non-oscillatory (WENO) scheme is incorporated into the recently developed four kinds of lattice Boltzmann flux solver (LBFS) to simulate compressible flows, including inviscid LBFS I …

About this journal

Acta Mechanica Sinica, sponsored by the Chinese Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, promotes scientific exchanges and collaboration among Chinese scientists in China and abroad. It features high quality, original papers in all aspects of mechanics and mechanical sciences.

Not only does the journal explore the classical subdivisions of theoretical and applied mechanics such as solid and fluid mechanics, it also explores recently emerging areas such as biomechanics and nanomechanics. In addition, the journal investigates analytical, computational, and experimental progresses in all areas of mechanics. Lastly, it encourages research in interdisciplinary subjects, serving as a bridge between mechanics and other branches of engineering and the sciences.

In addition to research papers, Acta Mechanica Sinica publishes reviews, notes, experimental techniques, scientific events, and other special topics of interest.
