Convergence of the Rayleigh–Ritz Method for buckling analysis of arbitrarily configured I-section beam–columns

Design of the slender members requires calculation of buckling loads in addition to stress and deflection demand/capacity ratios. The Rayleigh–Ritz Method, which allows one to present approximate closed-form solutions for certain cases, is one of …

A unified procedure for free transverse vibration of rectangular and annular sectorial plates

A unified solution procedure applicable for analyzing the free transverse vibration of both rectangular and annular sectorial plates is presented in this study. For the annular sectorial plate, the basic theory is simplified by a variable …

Analytic solution for reflection and transmission coefficients of joints in three-dimensional truss-type structural networks

This paper presents an analytic solution method to evaluate transient response of the joints in the truss-type structural networks. The analytic method models the wave propagation along the elastic members connected to the joints and derives the …

Neutrality of a partially debonded rigid inclusion in anti-plane shear

We consider a coated rigid inclusion inserted into an elastic matrix subjected to uniform remote anti-plane shear stresses and examine whether the inclusion can be made neutral (meaning that its introduction will not disturb the original uniform …

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.
