Abstract:

This proceeding contains the papers presented at the 1993 Army Symposium on Solid Mechanics, held at Plymouth, Massachusetts, August 17-19, 1993. It was the thirteenth in a series of biennial symposia with an emphasis on solid mechanics research achievements relevant to defense system needs. The symposia series which began in 1966, has been sponsored by the Army Materials Technology Laboratory in its role as the US Army lead laboratory for solid mechanics research and exploratory development. In October 1992, the research laboratories under Army Materiel Command were reorganized, and the Army Research Laboratory ARL was established with 10 Directorates. The Materials Technology Laboratory became the Materials Directorate. This symposium is the first one organized under ARL with collaborations from three directorates, namely Materials Directorate, Vehicle Structures Directorate and Weapons Technology Directorate, and the Army Research Office which has the responsibility of managing Armys basic research programs. The symposium is organized into nine technical sessions covering subjects from basic research to applications. A total of fifty seven 57 technical papers were presented by the contributors representing government laboratories, academic institutions, and industry.
