Archives of Civil and Mechanical Engineering (ACME) publishes both theoretical and experimental papers which explore or exploit new ideas and techniques in the following areas: structural engineering (structures, machines and mechanical systems), mechanics of materials (elasticity, plasticity, rheology, fatigue, fracture mechanics), materials science (metals, composites, ceramics, plastics, wood, concrete, etc., their structures and properties, methods of evaluation), In addition to research papers, the Editorial Board welcome: state-of-the-art reviews of specialized topics. All papers are subject to a referee procedure.
ACME does not accept manuscripts containing:
• Simulation with no experimental verification and/or which gives no new insight into the process.
• The analysis of material properties or product performance without reference to the processing which caused them and their application.
