The elliptic homoeoid inclusion in plane elasticity

The transformation problem of an elliptical homoeioid inclusion with a uniform eigenstrain embedded in an unbounded homogeneous isotropic medium is studied in the context of plane elasticity. The term homoeoid is used to name a region of a plane …


1:1 internal resonance in a two d.o.f. complete system: a comprehensive analysis and its possible exploitation for design

The internal resonance of a two degree-of-freedom mechanical system with all typical (quadratic and cubic) geometric nonlinearities is studied, limiting to the case of free dynamics. The Multiple Time Scale method is used to provide an analytical …


On the application of fractional calculus for the formulation of viscoelastic Reddy beam

The focus of the current work is to present the bending analysis of visco-elastic beams based on Reddy’s third-order shear deformation theory. Fractional calculus is taken into account for dealing with the fractional derivative terms, able to …


A novel analytical model based on arc tangent velocity field for prediction of rolling force in strip rolling

Accurate prediction of rolling force is an effective method to improve strip quality in rolling process. To achieve this goal, a novel arc tangent velocity field model based on the upper bound method is proposed to evaluate the rolling force. The …

Suppression of friction-induced-vibration in MDoF systems using tangential harmonic excitation

This paper investigates the effects of tangential harmonic excitation on the friction-induced-vibration in multi-degree-of-freedom systems that are coupled in the tangential and normal directions. A minimal two-degree-of-freedom system and a more …

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.
