American Journal of Engineering and Applied Sciences


This special issue devoted to the integrated study of mechanical, industrial and automotive engineering (from earliest times to the present day) will be published to give researchers appreciation of where the discipline has come from. We aim to provide an advanced forum for studies related to the proposed fields with all topics below. The objective of this special issue is to present recent advances and emerging cross-disciplinary approaches in the field of mechanical, industrial and automotive engineering. Mechanical engineering is the discipline that applies the principles of engineering, physics, and materials science for the design, analysis, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. It is the branch of engineering which involves the design, production, and operation of machinery. The editors also would like to encourage studies that outline the general development of the main branches of math and physics as we know them today and even to discuss principal figures in each area. Articles discussing methodology, and reviews of the current state of knowledge and possibilities for future research, are especially welcome.

Moreover, this issue will publish reviews and research articles. There is no restriction on the length of the papers or colors. Full experimental and methodological details, as applicable, must be provided. AJEAS is an open access peer reviewed technical journal which publishes original research contributions and is an unparalleled resource for key advances in the field of engineering. Scope of the journal includes but not limited to applied physics and applied mathematics, automation and control, biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, computer science, data engineering and software engineering, earth and environmental engineering, electrical engineering, industrial engineering and operations research, information technology and informatics, materials science, measurement and metrology, mechanical engineering, medical physics, power engineering, signal processing and telecommunications.

Manuscripts regarding original research proposals and research ideas highly appreciated. Manuscripts containing summaries and surveys on research cooperation and actual and future projects (as those founded by national governments or others) are likewise appreciated, as they provide interesting information for a broad field of users.

All accepted papers of this special issue will be published free of charge.
