Abstract : A Symposium on Advances and Trends in Structural and Solid Mechanics was held in Washington, D.C., on October 4-7, 1982. NASA Langley Research Center and George Washington University sponsored the symposium in cooperation with the National Science Foundation, the Office of Naval Research, the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, the American Society of Civil Engineers, and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. The objectives of the symposium were to communicate recent advances and new insights into physical behavior and to identify the trends in the solution procedures for structural and solid mechanics problems. This conference publication includes 26 papers; 19 were presented at research in progress sessions and 7 at other sessions. The papers deal with (1) computational strategies for nonlinear problems, (2) material characterization, (3) advances in boundary elements and finite element technology, (4) advanced structural applications, (5) structural stability and analytical techniques, and (6) structural dynamics and vehicle crashworthiness.
