Communications in Numerical Methods in Engineering
Communications in Numerical Methods in Engineering is an international
journal which publishes short, refereed
contributions describing significant developments in numerical methods and
the application of such techniques to the solution of
practical engineering problems. It is a companion journal to the
International Journal for Numerical Methods in Engineering, the
International Journal for Numerical and Analytical Methods in Geomechanics
and the International Journal for Numerical Methods in Fluids. These
journals will now concentrate largely on full-length papers. This journal
will enable important developments in numerical methods and their
application to be made available quickly to the scientific and engineering
community whereas longer papers on these developments can subsequently
appear in the established journals.
Papers published in this journal will fall largely into two main categories.
The first will contain those contributions describing newdevelopments in
numerical analysis and methods which have a practical application. The
second category will contain contributions on the industrial application of
numerical methods. Novel implementations of existing methods will also be
particularly welcome. In modern engineering practice, numerical methods are
becoming increasingly integrated into the design
process through fully interactive design software. However, before any new
technique can be implemented in computer-aided
engineering and design it must be fully validated. This applies to the
technique itself and to any new computational algorithms
required to implement the new method. In consequence, the description of new
numerical methods, their validation, for exampleby comparison with
experimental data, and the description of new computational algorithms will
be suitable material for this journal.
Available by subscription only.
