ANALYSIS OF RESEARCH TRENDS IN THE FIELD OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING

Adrian Knapczyk, Sławomir Francik

Abstract


The work includes a bibliometric analysis of the main topics and research trends within the discipline of Mechanical Engineering. On the basis of analysis of data from the Scopus database, the Applied Mechanics Reviews magazine was chosen, which is the only one conducting scientific activity exclusively in the field of Mechanical Engineering. In the years of analysis (2002-2017), it was pointed out that the main research topics are optimization issues, material engineering and mechanics.

Keywords
