The symposium proceedings on structural dynamics under high impulse loading are proceedings divided into four major technical areas mechanical properties of solids, wave propagation phenomena and structural response, hypervelocity impact, fracture phenomena. The session presentations point out the problems which exist in the development of reliable aero space vehicle structures. These structures, or bital and otherwise, may be subjected to violent impulsive loads. These loads may come from col lision with meteoroids, man made pellets or other energy sources. In each case the loads are of enormous magnitude and extremely short dura tion. They are several orders of magnitude more intense than loads experienced by structures in the familiar earth-bound environment.
