SpringerBriefs in Applied Sciences and Technology

Computational Mechanics

227 Volumes | 2011 - 2020

Description

SpringerBriefs present concise summaries of cutting-edge research and practical applications across a wide spectrum of fields. Featuring compact volumes of 50–125 pages, the series covers a range of content from professional to academic.

Typical publications can be:

  • A timely report of state-of-the art methods
  • An introduction to or a manual for the application of mathematical or computer techniques
  • A bridge between new research results, as published in journal articles
  • A snapshot of a hot or emerging topic
  • An in-depth case study
  • A presentation of core concepts that students must understand in order to make independent contributions

SpringerBriefs are characterized by fast, global electronic dissemination, standard publishing contracts, standardized manuscript preparation and formatting guidelines, and expedited production schedules.

On the one hand, SpringerBriefs in Applied Sciences and Technology are devoted to the publication of fundamentals and applications within the different classical engineering disciplines as well as in interdisciplinary fields that recently emerged between these areas. On the other hand, as the boundary separating fundamental research and applied technology is more and more dissolving, this series is particularly open to trans-disciplinary topics between fundamental science and engineering.

Indexed by EI-Compendex, SCOPUS and Springerlink.
