Call for Papers: Data Assimilation in Computational Mechanics – Recent Advances and New Trends

The use of experimental data in association with simulation models has become an active research topic. Indeed, new experimental facilities (such as digital image/volume correlation (DIC/DVC)) now enable to collect a large and diversified amount of data, and these may be used to identify and validate complex models, or to enhance predictions made by simulations tools. Furthermore, data and models are more and more intertwined to improve knowledge in applications dealing with structural health monitoring and control for instance, with potential real-time dialogue between simulators and connected physical systems (e.g., the DDDAS concept). However, many challenges dealing with data filtering, computational cost, or numerical robustness need to be addressed in order to incorporate data efficiently.

Call for Papers : Recent Developments in Unfitted Finite Element Methods

Unfitted Finite Element Methods (UFEM e.g. CutFEM, XFEM, Finite Cell FEM, CGFEM) have been extensively investigated over the last two decades. The use of computational meshes that do not need to conform to the geometrical features of boundary value problems is highly interesting to practitioners in many fields of computational sciences and engineering. However, UFEM are yet to be adopted as a standard analysis tool. This is due to a number of important theoretical, implementational and numerical challenges, which we wish to address in this special issue.

Call for Papers: Interface Modeling and Simulation in Polycrystalline Materials

Modeling and numerical simulation of interfaces in polycrystalline materials, or interphases in materials subjected to phase transformation, is a primary topic in predicting/optimizing the mechanical response to complex thermomechanical loading, either when the ratio of interface area vs. sample volume becomes very large, as in nanostructured materials or certain geophysical materials. In such conditions, interface-mediated plasticity may indeed become a prevalent deformation mechanism.

Article Processing Charge (APC) Paying Options

The following are the APC payment options that authors can take upon the submission to Advanced Modeling and Simulation in Engineering Sciences. The option has to be selected at the time of a manuscript submission and follow up actions to the selection will take place if the review decision of the submission is decided as “Accepted for publication”. 

Option 1: SpringerOpen Fee Waiver request

Authors from low income countries or from SpringerOpen Membership institutions will be able to separately request waivers or discounts in Editorial Manager.

Option 2: Author self-paying APC

The authors will pay the full charge of APC of their manuscript (EUR 1000 per paper). Self-paying authors will do so through Editorial Manager.

Option 3: Computational Structural Mechanics Association (CSMA) Fee Coverage Request

There is a full fee sponsorship offered by CSMA for select Special Issue and Review articles. Please note that this not the same as requesting a waiver (see Option 1).

Funding your APC

​​​​​​​Open access funding and policy support by SpringerOpen​​

​​​​We offer a free open access support service to make it easier for you to discover and apply for article-processing charge (APC) funding. Learn more here

COVID-19 and impact on peer review

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
