EML Special Issue Call for Paper: Machine Learning and Mechanics

Extreme Mechanics Letters (EML) Special Issue: Call for Paper 

Machine Learning and Mechanics


Over the past decade, there has been a growing interest in applying machine learning techniques to problems in mechanics. From material design optimization, manufacturing, to multiscale modelling, to real time prediction and autonomy, data mining and analysis, machine learning techniques have had a massive impact in the field.

Currently, machine learning methods are accessible to researchers across the broad range of mechanics sub-disciplines. Thus, the aim of this special issue is to highlight recent advances across this diverse field – both in terms of fundamental methodology and applications – and set the tone for the next generation of machine learning in mechanics research. Now that these techniques have emerged as ubiquitous tools, what new research directions in mechanics are possible, what new developments in computational methods and AI strategies are critical, and what impacts can this have on solving critical challenges that could not be tackled previously?
