Extreme Mechanics Letters (EML) seeks to publish research of immediacy, depth, and originality. Through in-depth lectures and extensive discussions, EML Webinars shed light on the forefront of research, as well as the formative years of researchers. To read is human, to watch divine - engineering EML Webinar
