Finite Elements in Engineering and Science: Proceedings of the Second International DIANA Conference, Computational Mechanics '97, Amsterdam, 4-6 June 1997

All 50 papers presented are compiled in this volume. They are subdivided into five chapters: Concrete mechanics and soil structures; Geomechanics and soil-structure interaction; Steel and composite structures; Computational mechanics of materials and Finite element technology and software development. The present state of knowledge in research, development and utilisation of computational mechanics is outlined, with emphasis on the above application fields. This volume is addressed to both researchers and end-users of modern finite element software.
