Abstract:

The purpose of the conference was to discuss the recent developments in the field of matrix methods of structural analysis and design of aerospace vehicles. The conference was attended by over two hundred invited scientists and engineers from Australia, Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, and United Kingdom, and the United States. The participation of representatives from overseas was a noteworthy highlight of this conference since it permitted a free interchange of ideas and information between scientists and engineers from the United States and allied countries. Therefore this conference may be truly considered to be the First International Conference on the subject of matrix methods in structural mechanics. The thirty-six papers presented were arranged into six sessions under five different themes General Matrix Methods, Finite Element Properties, Nonlinear Effects, Dynamics, and Applications. The papers cover practically all major aspects of recent research and development work in the field of matrix methods of structural analysis and design.
