Journal overview

The primary aim of Computer Methods in Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering (CMBBE) is to provide a means of communicating the advances being made in the area of computational biomechanics and biomedical engineering with the emphasis being placed on biomechanics.

High quality research articles form the main body of the journal. These papers will focus on state-of-the-art computational aspects of biomechanics and simulation in both engineering and clinical scenarios. Accepted submissions will be of high scientific value in providing a significant contribution and impact on computational biomechanics. They should also expand upon novel and innovative research where the methods, analysis and conclusions are robust and of the highest standard.

CMBBE also encourages rapid innovative communications of 1,500 words. These would feature novel and innovative approaches within the field of computational biomechanics providing the journal with a forum of cutting edge content which will significantly impact the area. We aim to review such submissions within a shorter time frame than full research articles.

Topics covered include the computational aspects of:

  • Mechanics of biological tissue, organ systems and biomaterials
  • Material identification and inverse problems
  • Human body movement, motion analysis and impact
  • Cell mechanics, mechanotransduction, and computational mechanobiology
  • Computer assisted surgery and simulation
  • Biofluids and hemodynamics
  • Modelling, design and assessment of medical devices and implants
  • Application of imaging in biomechanics
  • Joint and ligament mechanics
  • Multiscale and multiphysics modelling

All papers are subject to the peer review process, including rapid innovative communications.
