Latin American Journal of Solids and Structures

Thank you for visiting this web site and for your support to the Latin American Journal of Solids and Structures, LAJSS. 
is supported by the:
  • Argentinean Association of Computational Mechanics
  • Brazilian Association of Computational Mechanics
  • Brazilian Society of Mechanical Sciences and Engineering
  • Chilean Society for Computational Mechanics
  • Mexican Association of Numerical Methods in Engineering and Applied Sciences

LAJSS has also the financial support of the Brazilian Research Funding Agencies CNPq and CAPES and it is indexed in the Web of Science, SCOPUS, DOAJ, EBSCO, SOCOLAR and SCIELO.
LAJSS is a free journal, with on-line and hard copy versions. It is published four times a year (March, June, September and December) and its contents can be freely downloaded from this site.
In  Lecture & Historical Notes  you will be able to download relevant educational material for teaching and research as well as some seminal articles published decades ago. There you will also find a bit of the history of this journal.

The Latin American Journal of Solids and Structures is a forum for publication and dissemination of original work related to mechanical and civil engineering sciences. Researchers all over the world are welcome to submit their papers covering theoretical, numerical and experimental topics in continuum and applied mechanics, in both their linear and non-linear aspects. Interest covers inorganic as well as organic solids and structures.

In order to accomplish a high standard, papers submitted to the journal undergo a peer reviewing procedure coordinate by the editorial board and covering the following areas:

  • Acoustics Vibration
  • Aerospace Science and Technology
  • Automotive Engineering
  • Biomechanics Composite and Cellular Materials
  • Computational Methods
  • Dynamic Systems & Control
  • Experimental Mechanics
  • Material Modelling
  • Microsystems and Machine Design
  • Multiscale phenomena
  • Nanomechanics
  • New materials
  • Ocean and Offshore Engineering
  • Optimisation
  • Structural Mechanics
  • Theoretical and Continuum Mechanics
  • Thermomechanics and fluid-solid interaction
