IJHM provides a multidisciplinary forum for the publication of the latest research in the integrated field of hydraulic, mechanical and electrical engineering. Aspects involving the interaction phenomena between hydraulics and mechatronics, hydraulic elements integrated with mechatronic systems and vice versa will be covered, with emphasis on the application of hydromechatronics for the enhancement or creation of new functionalities for hydraulic or mechatronic components, devices, products and systems.


 Topics covered include

  • Hydromechatronics
  • Hydraulics
  • Pneumatics
  • Functional fluids
  • Mechatronics
  • Fluid mechanics
  • Transmission and control
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Sensors
  • Parameter identification
  • Vibration control
  • Measurement
  • Signal processing
  • Fault diagnosis

More on this journal...

Hydromechatronics technology is one of the indispensable key technologies in a new round of industrial revolution with information technology and intelligent manufacturing as core areas. However, current academic journals mainly focus on the theory and technology of mechanics, mechatronics or hydraulics independently, without coverage of hydromechatronics. Hence, IJHM provides an effective international academic platform for scholars and technicians engaged in hydromechatronics in all regions. IJHM will report significant new findings in the theory, methods and innovative application of hydromechatronics. It aims to promote scientific research, strengthen academic exchanges, boost technological progress and serve society.


IJHMís readership includes academic scholars, researchers and professionals in the field of mechanical, electric and hydraulic engineering.


IJHM publishes original academic papers and review papers. Special issues devoted to important topics in hydromechatronics will occasionally be published.
