This quantity offers forty unique papers on fresh advances in numerous subject matters in engineering mechanics offered on the Theodore Y-T Wu Symposium on Engineering Mechanics: a party of Professor Wu's clinical contributions for his eightieth birthday. the prestigious members contain a number of participants of the nationwide Academy of Engineers and the themes conceal nonlinear water waves, swimming and flying in nature, biomechanics, information research method, and propulsion hydrodynamics. The papers honor the numerous accomplishments of Professor Wu in Engineering technological know-how at Caltech, quite within the parts of nonlinear waves, hydrodynamics, biomechanics and wave-structure interplay. They evaluate the current state-of-the-art of engineering mechanics, and chart the way forward for the sphere from the point of view of civil engineering, biomechanics, geophysics, mechanical engineering, naval structure, ocean, and offshore engineering. the first goal of this booklet is to supply tips and proposal for these attracted to carrying on with to improve engineering mechanics into the twenty first century. to cite Professor Wu: "The price of a publication e-book lies in disseminating new wisdom attained with attempt and commitment from all those that take part, and in having the important effects inside of prepared succeed in of scholars and researchers actively operating within the field."

Whilst desiring to construct digital filters, younger engineers may be conscious of the elemental rules whereas no longer getting slowed down in tricky and intricate mathematical points. A presentation of the elemental rules supplemented via numerical courses illustrating the layout method will fulfil those necessities.
