Solid mechanics is a basic scientific discipline which provides the theoretical foundation, experimental support, solution methodology and computational tools for analysis, design, construction, manufacture, and behavior prediction in service of many devices, machines, materials, structures and large complex systems that are essential to the existence and progress of an advanced civilization. It is concerned with both manmade, natural and living solid objects, and with all aspects of their physical behavior that affect their function, integrity or service life expectancy.
The contents of this volume offer examples of some of the activities that are currently at the forefront of solid mechanics research, and also illustrate the vast reach of the discipline and of its interactions with other science and engineering endeavors.
