IJTAMM is a fully-refereed journal that encourages the sharing of knowledge and discoveries amongst researchers in mechanics working at different length scales. Its scope is broad to encompass mechanics research at the atomistic, micro and macro length scales. It includes experimental, computational and theoretical works in both solid and fluid mechanics.


 Topics covered include

  • Atomistic modelling, Eigenstrain theory, Eigenvalue problems
  • Big data analysis and high-performance computing application in mechanics
  • Computational fluid mechanics of finite-difference, finite-volume methods
  • Constitutive and co-current modelling and phenomenology of engineering processes
  • Experimental mechanics of multi-body and multi-level structures and materials, NDT
  • Mechanics-based modern engineering systems design, validation and manufacturing
  • Mechanics of surface structure, surface finishing and surface engineering
  • Mechanics of thin films, thin layer, residual and thermal stresses quantification
  • Mechanical characteristics of elasticity, plasticity, viscoelasticity and viscoplasticity
  • Mechanics of metal, composite, renewable, recyclable, bio and smart materials
  • Mechanics of cutting-edge additive and subtractive manufacturing and processing
  • Multiscale, multiphysics, multi-phase in transitional and turbulent flows
  • Nanomechanics, micromechanics, mechanics of MEMS, NEMS system
  • Solid mechanics of finite-element and boundary-element modelling and simulation

More on this journal...

The main objective of IJTAMM is to provide a comprehensive global forum for researchers to publish their discoveries and findings in mechanics. It aims to encourage the linking of length scales in mechanics research, as the complexity of nature dictates. It provides a forum emphasising the importance of both theoretical and applied approaches with the aim of improving the knowledge base in mechanics to help solve the world’s ever growing challenges in engineering design and practice.


The expected readership of IJTAMM varies from mechanics researchers to professionals, academics and scholars. The journal should be of interest essentially to anyone involved in mechanics.


IJTAMM publishes original research papers, review articles and research notes. Research papers are full-length manuscripts. Review articles provide a comprehensive review of state-of-the-art or up-to-date coverage of a certain topic of interest. Research notes are short communications or technical briefs. In addition, Special Issues will be published from time to time. Such issues typically represent conference or symposium proceedings, or contributions gathered by invited Guest Editors from experts in their particular specialties.
