The International Journal of Computational Methods and Experimental Measurements (CMEM) provides the scientific community with a forum to present the interaction between the complementary aspects of computational methods and experimental measurements, and to stress the importance of their harmonious development and integration.
The steady progress in the efficiency of computers and software has resulted in the continuous development of computer simulation, which has influenced all scientific and engineering activities. As these simulations expand and improve, the need to validate them grows, and this can only be successfully achieved by performing dedicated experimental tests. Furthermore, because of their continual development, experimental techniques are becoming so complex and sophisticated that they need to be controlled by computers, with the data obtained processed by means of computational methods.
The aim of the Journal is to review the latest work in computational methods and experimental measurements, with a view to achieving harmonious development and interaction between the two.
This journal is specifically dedicated to the dissemination of the latest developments of new engineering analysis techniques using boundary elements and other mesh reduction methods.
Boundary element (BEM) and mesh reduction methods (MRM) are very active areas of research with the techniques being applied to solve increasingly complex problems. The journal stresses the importance of these applications as well as their computational aspects, reliability and robustness.
The main criteria for publication will be the originality of the work being reported, its potential usefulness and applications of the methods to new fields.
In addition to regular issues, the journal publishes a series of special issues dealing with specific areas of current research.
The journal has, for many years, provided a channel of communication between academics and industrial researchers working in mesh reduction methods.
The objective of this journal is to communicate recent and projected advances in computer-based engineering techniques. The fields covered include mechanical, aerospace, civil and environmental engineering, with an emphasis on research and development leading to practical problem-solving.
The journal publishes research papers, survey papers on key application areas, short communications and technical notes, discussions, software reviews and book reviews. A conference calendar is also included - entries welcome.
