1. In the journal PRIKLADNAYA MEKHANIKA, the not published elsewhere before and not planned for simultaneous publications in other editions original articles and also invited review and generalizing articles are inserted. The original articles should contain new scientific results of theoretical and experimental investigations in the field of mechanics of deformable and rigid bodies. The plan of publications of reviews is approved by the Editorial Board on the base of proposals of the Editorial Board members.

2. The article must be presented in two copies 14 20 pages, typewritten on one side of the standard sheet (21x30cm), double-spaced, and with margins 3cm on the left and 1cm on the right.

5. The simplest symbols and indexes are recommended for mathematical notations. The awkward expressions should be avoided using reduced notations, published articles citing, verbal explanations and so on.

6. Figures and tables should be added on separate sheets, their location in the text should be indicated. Figures must be made in PC with the resolution more than 300 dpi and have the clear image.

The inscriptions overloading the figure must be changed on number or letter notations with explanations of them in the text. The preferable size of the figure is the one admissible for the publication in the scale 1:1.

7. The used in the manuscript units of physical quantities must correspond to the SI system.

8. The list of references should be given in the alphabetical order at the end of the article. The references on the cited origins should be indicated in the text in the square brackets. The examples of writing of basic types of references are given below.

9. In the case, when the article was revised, the date of receiving of the revised text is assumed as the date of submission. The request for revising does not mean that the article is accepted to publication, the revised article is considered anew by the Editorial Board.
