Low-frequency vibrations, generally with large amplitude, contribute to problems in many fields, such as vehicles, marine crafts, and buildings. For example, in the system involving human operators or passengers, low-frequency vibration is one of the leading causes of discomfort, motion sickness, and musculoskeletal disorders. At the same time, large-amplitude low-frequency vibration threatens system safety significantly by inducing irreversible structural damages. As a result, many advanced technologies have emerged in this field, and some have been applied in practice, such as semi-active absorbers and isolators in vehicles and buildings.
Therefore, this Special Issue aims to bring together papers that describe recent advances in low-frequency vibration control with passive, active, semi-active, or hybrid ways. It is particularly encouraged that papers propose new concepts, investigate multiple DOFs’ vibration control by considering coupling dynamics, and study nonlinear technologies.

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. Machines is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2400 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.
