Dynamic analysis of a belt transmission with the GMS friction model

The paper presents a certain method of analysing the dynamics of a belt transmission. A flat transmission model developed by us was presented. For the analysis, it assumed the transmission 5PK belt. A discrete belt model, being a system of rigid …


Numerical analysis of the drop impact onto a liquid film of non-linear viscoelastic fluids

This paper numerically analyzes the crown formation due to a plane two-dimensional drop impact onto a pre-existing film in a viscoelastic fluid. The finite volume method is applied to solve the governing equations, and the volume of fluid …

Euler–Bernoulli elastic beam models of Eringen’s differential nonlocal type revisited within a continuous displacement framework

A theory of the Erigen’s differential nonlocal beams of (isotropic) elastic material is prospected independent of the original integral formulation. The beam problem is addressed within a $$C^{(0)}-$$ C ( 0 ) - continuous displacement framework …

Approximation and application of the Riesz-Caputo fractional derivative of variable order with fixed memory

In this paper, the Riesz-Caputo fractional derivative of variable order with fixed memory is considered. The studied non-integer differential operator is approximated by means of modified basic rules of numerical integration. The three proposed …

Über diese Zeitschrift

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.
