Mechanics of the Solid State
Collected in this volume are nineteen selected contributions written by twenty-six scholars in the field, in honour of their teacher and colleague, Professor Joseph Marin.
Latest developments in the following specific fields are presented: Mathematical Inference from Mechanics, Elasticity, Cosserat Continua, Elastic Waves, Hypervelocity Impact, Composite Materials, Viscoelasticity, Plasticity, Creep, Relaxation, Low Cycle Fatigue, Crack Formation, Fracture, Pressure Vessel and Extrusion Die Design. The volume is a valuable and original contribution to engineering literature and will be of interest not only to engineers, but also to mathematicians and physicists.
Dr. Joseph Marin led a life-long campaign for the introduction of the term Mechanics of the Solid State as a worthy companion of Physics of the Solid State. In fulfillment of his wish and in honour of his memory the present volume has been named Mechanics of the Solid State. It provides a list of the 162 papers and six books contributed by Dr. Marin to engineering literature, and a short description of his professional life.

DR. F.P.J RIMROTT studied Mechanical Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at the T.H. Karlsruhe, the University of Toronto and the Pennsylvania State University where he was a student of Professor Joseph Marin. He was conducted research in Solid Mechanics, and development work on spacecraft structures. The author of more than thirty papers in engineering research and engineering education, he has served as Chairman of the Canadian National Committee for the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (IUTAM). He is a consultant to the aerospace industry and Professor of Mechanical engineering at the University of Toronto.
DR. JOSEPH SCHWAIGHOFER studied Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at the T. H. Graz and the Pennsylvania State University where he also was a student of Dr. Joseph Marin. In 1960 he held a research fellowship of the French government at the University of Nancy and from 1965 to 1966 he was a Visiting Associate Professor at North Carolina State University. Professor Schwaighofer is a consultant in model analysis to several structural firms and has conducted research in Solid State Mechanics and Photoelasticity. At present he is Associate Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Toronto.
