13th ASCE Engineering Mechanics Conference - June
13-16, 1999


The 13th ASCE Engineering Mechanics Specialty Conference will be held
in Baltimore, Maryland June 13-16, 1999.

We have a web site for the conference:


which will contain up-to-date conference information.  We will be
distributing a limited number paper versions of the first announcement
in the next several weeks (they are the same as what is on the web).
As I had your email address on file, I am taking the liberty of
sending you an electronic version. Please feel free to distribute this
among your colleagues.

If you are interested in this meeting (and I sincerely hope that you
may be) please contact us by mail, email or via the web page response
form so we can keep you on the mailing list for future information on
the conference.

If you want to be REMOVED from the mailing list for all future
information, please also notfy us immediately and we will take you off
the emailing list.  Some of you will receive multiple copies of this
email through mutiple addresses.  Please notify us which is your
preferred address, and we will remove the others so as to avoid this
in the future.

         First Announcement and Call for Abstracts


The 13th ASCE Engineering Mechanics Division Conference provides a
major forum for the exchange of information and discussion of recent
developments in, and applications of, engineering mechanics.


The conference sessions will be conducted on the beautiful 140-acre
Homewood campus of the Johns Hopkins University.  The tranquillity of
Homewood is just minutes away from downtown Baltimore and the
attractions of the Inner Harbor, and less than an hour by train or car
from Washington, D.C.

Technical coverage

The technical program for the conference comprises keynote lectures
and submitted papers on completed and ongoing research covering topics
in engineering mechanics.  Specifically, the following representative
topics will be covered:

Solid Mechanics
Fluid Mechanics
Computational Mechanics
Computational Fluid Dynamics
Mechanics of Composites
Continuum Mechanics
Elasticity and Elastodynamics
Nonlinear Mechanics
Linear/Nonlinear Dynamics, Chaos
System Identification and Control
NDE, Damage and Condition Assessment
High-Performance Materials, Smart Materials and
Fracture, Crack Propagation, Damage Mechanics
Fluid-Structure Interaction
Soil Mechanics and Dynamics
Stochastic Mechanics
Mechanics of Granular Materials
Experimental Analysis

Call for papers

Prospective authors are requested to submit a one-page abstract by
August 31, 1998.  The abstract should contain sections addressing the
objective of the work presented, the methods employed, and
conclusions.  Abstracts should be submitted electronically (i.e., by
email, through the WWW site or by diskette) to Professor Nicholas P.
Jones, at the address provided below.  Submission of hard copy (i.e.,
paper) abstracts - while acceptable - is strongly discouraged. Authors
of accepted papers will be notified electronically on November 1,
1998, and will be requested to submit manuscripts electronically and
prepared in accordance with guidelines, by January 31, 1999.  Papers
will be limited to four (4) pages.

Conference publications

Accepted abstracts will be published on the Conference WWW site before
the meeting.  All invited and contributed papers will be published in
a CDROM volume of the conference proceedings, to be made available at
the time of registration. In addition, a booklet containing the
program and all one-page abstracts will also be provided at
registration.  Full papers will also be made available on the
Conference web site.
