Challenge Journal of Structural Mechanics

cjsmec.challengejournal.com

Challenge Journal of Structural Mechanics is an international, quarterly published and open access scholarly journal that publishes original research articles as well as review articles, case studies, short communications, discussions, book reviews, letters to the editor and a diary on international events related to any aspect of structural engineering.

Primary aim of CJSMEC is to encourage academic challenges in structural mechanics and materials disciplines to seek for the global truth. Therefore, the Journal intends to publish at least a review or discussion as a challenge to previously published papers at each issue. A double blind peer-review policy is followed in order to increase the scientific quality of the published papers.


 

DOI Assignment

TULPAR Academic Publishing has completed the agreement with Crossref. DOIs have been assigned to the published articles in Challenge Journal of Structural Mechanics and future articles will be published directly with their DOIs.

Furthermore, more journals are incoming within our publishing group. We kindly ask you to recommend Challenge Journals to your colleagues and encourage them to submit their high quality papers to the journals.

 

Scope of CJSMEC

Contributions may range from new methods to novel applications of existing methods to gain understanding of the structural based mechanical behavior of new and advanced engineering systems.

ICHSA 2020: 6th International Conference on Harmony Search, Soft Computing and Applications

 

6th International Conference on Harmony Search, Soft Computing and Applications to be held in İstanbul, Turkey, April 22-24, 2020. ICHSA 2020 is organized under the auspices of the İstanbul University-Cerrahpaşa. Symposium will focus in all aspects of Harmony Search (HS) and other soft computing techniques. HS is one of the most popular metaheuristic algorithms, developed in 2001 by Prof. Joong Hoon Kim and Prof. Zong Woo Geem, that mimicks the improvisation process of jazz musicians to seek the best harmony. The application to diverse science and engineering problems are accepted from all disciplines and it must be noted that all soft computing methods different from HS are welcomed..

Papers presented in ICHSA 2020 which are focused on structural mechanics studies, will be considered for publication in Challenge Journal of Structural Mechanics. Authors may submit their full length papers via online submission system or send to cjsmec@challengejournal.com via e-mail. Regarding to the count and the diversity of the studies, papers will be published in a special issue or in the regular issues in an appropriate calendar.
