Abstract : This monograph systematically presents methods of solution for both steady-state and transient loading on various obstacles, and also numerical results of dynamic stress concentration on obstacles of different geometries. An effort is made to collect information from the open literature as well as from government agencies, industry, and individuals. (Author-PL)
