Name:Mechanism and Machine Theory

Author:A. Kecskemethy (Editor-in-Chief)




This international journal provides a medium of communication between engineers and scientists engaged in research and development within the fields of knowledge embraced by IFToMM, the International Federation for the Promotion of Mechanism and Machine Science.

The main topics are:

  • Design Theory and Methodology.
  • Haptics and Human-Machine-Interfaces.
  • Robotics, Mechatronics and Micro-Machines.
  • Mechanisms, Mechanical Transmissions and Machines.
  • Kinematics, Dynamics, and Control of Mechanical Systems.
  • Applications to Bioengineering and Molecular Chemistry.

Methodologically, this includes theoretical, experimental, and/or historical approaches, along with their practical application, including education. Substantially, the journal aims at covering all subjects related to mechanisms and machines in general, such as: design theory and methodology, kinematics of mechanisms, rotor dynamics, computational kinematics, multibody dynamics, dynamics of machinery, nonlinear vibrations, linkages and cams, gearing and transmissions, transportation machinery, control and reliability of mechanical systems, including hydraulic and pneumatic systems, experimental test techniques, robots and robotic technologies, mechatronics, micromachines, human-machine interfaces, haptics, among others. Prospective fields of application of mechanism and machine science to other scientific areas such as bioengineering and molecular chemistry are also welcome.

Name:Journal of Multi-body Dynamics


Publisher:Professional Engineering Publishing Limited


Description:From the journal: "The Journal of Multi-body Dynamics is an international multi-disciplinary forum covering all aspects of mechanical design and dynamic analysis of multi-body systems. These include vehicles, mechanical machines, and mechanisms that constitute an assembly of part, or components that effect, the dynamic behaviour of the system as a whole. The dynamic analysis of multibody systems often includes dynamic interactions of various phenomena, such as large rigid-body motions, flexible-body oscillation, friction-induced stick-slip perturbations, and lubricated contact dynamics. The contributions to the Journal should reflect the holistic approach to the analysis of practical engineering multi-body dynamic problems. Those on design, analysis, and experimentation should have a system dynamic approach, highlighting the interactions between various system components. New techniques of analysis are welcome as well as practical applications of problem-solving methods to industrial systems and products."
