Proceedings of the 11th ASCE Engineering Mechanics Conference, held in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, May 20-22, 1996. Sponsored by the Engineering Mechanics Division of ASCE.
This collection contains 296 keynote and summary papers on engineering mechanics. Keynote papers address new trends in biomechanics, basic concepts and application of structural control, and recent advances in environmental fluid mechanics. The summary papers include those from three symposia on poroelasticity, computational geomechanics, and smart structures. Other topics include: mechanics in life sciences; turbulence; fluid structure interaction; granular flow; stochastic mechanics; system identification; soil-structure interaction; nondestructive evaluation of bridges and infrastructures; retrofitting and health monitoring of structures; damage and failure of composites; reinforced concrete and other engineering materials; modeling of material with discontinuities and heterogeneities; and mechanics of plates shells and beams.
