Abstract : This conference was the fifth in a series of meetings focused on several special research topics in the study of the non-linear dynamic response of elastic structures. The meeting was well attended, and participants included representatives from the United States, Canada, Europe, and Japan. The meeting lasted four and a half days, and the agenda consisted of a sequence of single sessions (i.e., there were no parallel sessions). Typically, five basic research papers were presented in each session. The research topics addressed included structural control, parametric vibrations, computational methods, multi-body dynamics, chaos, non-linear normal modes, and structural dynamics. (MM)
