Generalized spiral torsion spring energetic model

Torsional springs or coil springs are used to apply a torque and obtain a rotation of its shaft. They are usually manufactured with flat steel. Recommended maximum operating stresses in static applications are given as a percentage of tensile …

Vibration of nonlinear bolted lap-jointed beams using Timoshenko theory

This paper investigates the vibrational behavior of a system which consists of two free–free Timoshenko beams interconnected by a nonlinear joint. To model the bolted lap joint interface, a combination of the linear translational spring, linear …

Experimental and numerical investigations of mixed-mode ductile fracture in high-density polyethylene

High-density polyethylene (HDPE) is widely used in the production of fuel tanks and natural gas distribution systems, and therefore better understanding its fractural behavior under different loading conditions is essential. The present study is …

New analytic method for free torsional vibration analysis of a shaft with multiple disks and elastic supports

Free torsional vibration analysis of a shaft with multiple disks and elastic supports is important in mechanical engineering. As is well known, many numerical methods have been proposed to solve the problem, but exact analytic solutions are rarely …

About this journal

Archive of Applied Mechanics aims to disseminate new results and methods of scientific research in the field of solid and fluid mechanics, dynamics, vibrations and control. Material modeling, fracture and damage mechanics, continuum mechanics in general, structural mechanics, biomechanics and hydrodynamics are especially emphasized. Included are related disciplines, in a form useful to engineering practice. New analytical, numerical and experimental methods suited to research in the above mentioned subjects are welcomed.
Archive of Applied Mechanics was founded as “Ingenieur-Archiv” in 1929 (Vol. 1) by R. Grammel. The title was changed to “Archive of Applied” Mechanics in 1991.
