Special Issue "Vibration Control Systems"
A special issue of Machines (ISSN 2075-1702).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 January 2019
Vibration mitigation is essential for a broad class of geo-structural, mechanical and aerospace engineering systems that are subjected to significant vibrations. This Special Issue aims to present the latest advances and technologies in the field of mechanical vibration control systems. Topics include, but are not limited to: Control algorithms, semi-active and active systems, passive systems including linear/nonlinear absorbers, inerters, tuned mass dampers, linear/nonlinear viscous dampers, seismic base isolation/frictional sliding isolation system including smooth/non-smooth nonlinear dynamics, and hysteretic/inelastic energy dissipating devices.Dr. Nicholas A Alexander
Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Machines is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 350 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
