SPECIAL SESSION 8
to commemorate the life-time contributions of our dear friend and academician Prof. J.N. Reddy of Texas A&M University (TAMU) on his 75th Birthday.
He has contributed to research and education in applied mechanics through the authorship of creative and highlycited papers on variational principles, refined heories of plates and shells, computational methods in solids & structures and fluid dynamics, and nonlocal and non-classical continuum mechanics theories, which have impacted generations of researchers and engineers.
The full length papers will be reviewed in accordance with the review policies of the journal. The journal’s major emphasis is on papers seeking to bridge the gap between discrete and continuum approaches as well as micro and macro scales, by means of homogenization, statistical averaging, and other mathematical tools aimed at the judicial elimination of small time and length scales. In particular, the journal focuses on simultaneous descriptions of complex systems at several disparate scales. Papers presenting and explaining new experimental findings are highly encouraged. Lastly, the journal publishes numerical studies that build our understanding of the physical nature of phenomena.
