The U. S. National Committee on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics solicits proposals to host the 18th US Congress on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics in 2018. See attachment.
A limited number of travel fellowships to Beijing for ICTAM2012 will be available through the U. S. National Committee on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics. See the attached for details.
CALL FOR PROPOSALS TO HOST AN
INSTRUCTIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL
in 2012 or 2013
Professor Ed Berger, Univeristy of Virginia Mechanical Engineering, is featured in the Chronicle of Higher Education for his use of web technologies and, in particular, "video solutions" for teaching undergraduate mechanics courses. See http://chronicle.com/weekly/v54/i34/era01301.htm. Or contact Berger at email@example.com. Ed hasn't used this approach for all undergraduate mechanics courses as yet, but the potential is there.
Call for Papers on Education in Mechanics
22nd International Congress on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (ICTAM 2008)
Adelaide, Australia, August 24 – 30, 2008

The United States National Committee on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (USNC/TAM) seeks proposals from U.S. authors and institutions to host IUTAM (International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics) Symposia or IUTAM Instructional Summer Schools in 2010 or 2011.
A Report of the United States National Committee on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (USNC/TAM), June 2007
Dusan Krajcinovic, retired professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at Arizona State University, passed away on August 10, 2007, after a long illness. Dusan was active in the mechanics community. In addition to his teaching and research activities, he was a past member and chair of the Applied Mechanics Divison of ASME. He also served a term on the U. S. National Committee on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics. He authored the book Damage Mechanics published by North-Holland in 1996. He will be missed by all those who knew him.
Jan D. Achenbach, Walter P. Murphy Professor and McCormick School Distinguished Professor at Northwestern University was presented a 2005 National Medal of Science by President George W. Bush on July 27. Achenbach, who is well known in the mechanics community, was honored for his seminal contributions to engineering research and education in the area of wave propagation in solids and for pioneering the field of quantitative non-destructive evaluation. Previously, Achenbach received a 2003 National medal of Technology from President Bush.
