Journal of Structural Mechanics
Finnish Association for Structural Mechanics
The scope of the journal includes theoretical, computational and experimental mechanics of solids and fluids and mathematics related to these fields. Examples of possible topics are static and dynamic analyses of strength of structures, multibody dynamics, fluid mechanics, interaction of fluids and structures, design of structures and machines, structural optimization, functionality of structures in extreme conditions, smart machines and structures, vibration mechanics, contact mechanics, rotor dynamics, fracture mechanics and fatigue, thermomechanics, soil and rock mechanics, material technology, new materials, optimal control of dynamic systems, FEM, biomechanics, micromechanics, industrial and medical applications of mechanics, and teaching of mechanics and strength of materials.
The journal publishes also short letters containing opinions or critique on articles published in the journal or short letters describing a technical method or a solution having interest in the field of the journal. The length of these letters should not exceed two pages.
The periodical has been published since 1968,
and it consists of four issues each year, in general. The papers accepted can be written in Finnish or English.
The papers in Finnish include a short separate 'English Summary'. The Exchange Centre for Scientific Literature
(called Exchange Center on navigation) is in charge of the exchange of the periodical with various international forums.
