The emphasis of these proceedings is on contributions and advances in the areas of solid and fluid mechanics that advance civil engineering practice. The main topic considered are, computers and informations systems, dynamics and structural behaviour, elasticity, experimental analysis and instrumentation, inelastic behavior, mathematical methods, probabilistic methods, properties of materials, stabilitv, fluids, and measurement techniques and prediction methods in turbulent flows. These areas are discussed theoretically, analytically, and in application to various types of structures, structural components and materials, and in relation to forces, loads, vibrations, temperature and other influences on structural behavior and response.

Subject Headings: Structural behavior | Material properties | Structural analysis | Turbulent flow | Structural systems | Information systems | Fluid mechanics
