Special Issue of "Continuum Mechanics and Thermodynamics" Honors ME Professor David Steigmann

Monday, August 17, 2015

The July 2015 issue of Continuum Mechanics and Thermodynamics celebrates the award of the International Levi Civita Prize (2013) and the Engineering Science Medal conferred by the Society of Engineering Science (2013) to ME Professor David Steigmann. The issue highlights Professor Steigmann as "a distinguished scholar having made fundamental contributions to diverse areas of continuum mechanics and to the mechanics of structures ranging from finite elasticity and plasticity theory to the mechanics of thin films/substrate systems, electromagnetic phenomena in solid mechanics, variational methods, elastic stability, and the biomechanics of cells. In the same spirit, this special issue showcases papers in several areas of mechanics all of which have been influenced in some way by the inspiring contributions of Professor Steigmann."
