Efficient numerical solving of nonlinear solid mechanics problems is still a challenging issue which concerns various fields: nonlinear behavior, micromechanics, contact mechanics, damage, cracks propagation, rupture, etc. Numerical methods dedicated to such topics have been developed for many decades, but many fundamental and important challenges remain. In particular, multiscale methods which bridge different scales in time and space, efficient reduced-order models for variational inequalities or fully scalable nonlinear solvers, to name but a few.
For this Special Issue, we seek contributions which introduce or adapt advanced numerical methods for computational mechanics. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following: adaptive mesh refinement, domain decomposition method, multiscale approaches for heterogeneous materials, reduced order modeling, efficient nonlinear solvers, parallel computing, contact mechanics, and crack initiation and/or propagation.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Mathematics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2600 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.
