    Research output: Book/ReportBookResearchpeer-review


    The goal of this report is to pursue a new paradigm for basic research in Solid and Structural Mechanics in order to serve the needs of the Navy of the 21st century. The framework for the report was established through meetings of the committee with Navy engineers and Office of Naval Research personnel, and through extensive deliberations among committee members representing diverse interests and experiences. Several technological challenges emerged that confront the Navy as it plans to carry out its future missions, and fundamental advances in Solid and Structural mechanics will be required to meet these challenges.
