Abstract : The volume contains the Proceedings of the Twelfth International Congress of Applied Mechanics, held at Stanford University on August 26-31, 1968. This Congress, which is the latest in a series organized every four years by the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, brought together experts in applied mechanics from all over the world for the purpose of exchanging information regarding recent developments in their field. The membership included 1337 registrants from 32 countries. The book contains the texts of the four invited General Lectures and of the 26 contributed papers that were given extended presentation. These lectures contain original contributions in a wide range of subjects in both solid and fluid mechanics, and are representative of the best current activity in the various specialties. The book includes a resume of the Congress, a listing by title and author of the 255 shorter contributed papers, and a list of participants. (Author)
