The evolution of the law of random processes in the analysis of dynamic systems

The paper presents a method for determining the evolution of the cumulative distribution function of random processes which are encountered in the study of dynamic systems with some uncertainties in the characterizing parameters. It is proved that …


Dynamic modeling and simulation of a post-capture spacecraft with X-shape isolation system

The dynamic model of a post-capture spacecraft with X-shape isolation system is established considering the coupling of attitude changes, orbit motion and structural vibration. The post-capture spacecraft consists of a flexible servicing …


On the combination of multiple harmonics in direct and parametric forcing of an oscillator: new results on parametric amplification

In this article, we focus on the study of a forced single degree of freedom Hill-type differential equation, which can be found in particular in the modeling of gear interactions. We consider that the variable part of the stiffness is composed of …


An investigation of fluid-structure interaction in pipe conveying flow using reduced-order models

Fluid-structure interactions are essential to be evaluated in pipelines where the fluid dynamics induces structural vibrations that need to be properly investigated for engineering design. The flow of internal fluids can be laminar or turbulent …


Nonlinear dynamic analysis and experimental study of multi-link press with dry friction clearances of revolute joints

In mechanical system, the clearance between revolute joints is ineluctable, which will influence the motion precision and constancy of the system. Currently, studies of simple mechanisms with single clearance are relatively mature, but in-depth …

About this journal

Meccanica focuses on the methodological framework shared by mechanical scientists when addressing theoretical or applied problems. Original papers address various aspects of mechanical and mathematical modeling, of solution, as well as of analysis of system behavior. The journal explores fundamental and applications issues in established areas of mechanics research as well as in emerging fields; contemporary research on general mechanics, solid and structural mechanics, fluid mechanics, and mechanics of machines; interdisciplinary fields between mechanics and other mathematical and engineering sciences; interaction of mechanics with dynamical systems, advanced materials, control and computation; electromechanics; biomechanics.
Articles include full length papers; topical overviews; brief notes; discussions and comments on published papers; book reviews; and an international calendar of conferences.

Meccanica, the official journal of the Italian Association of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, was established in 1966.
