The 13th overseas Congress of Theoretical and utilized Mechanics used to be held in Moscow from Monday, 21 August, to Saturday, 26 August 1972. approximately 2500 contributors from 37 international locations around the globe attended the congress that used to be convened via the Congress Committee of the foreign Union of Theoretical and utilized Mechanics. The neighborhood or­ ganization lay within the arms of the Organizing Committee, validated via the USSR nationwide Committee on Theoretical and utilized Mechanics. The USSR Academy of Sciences rendered partial monetary support to the association of th8 congress. The Organizing Committee used to be assisted by way of the Institute of difficulties of Mechanics of the USSR Academy of Sciences, by way of the examine Institute for Mechanics of Moscow collage, and by means of the Computing middle and the Institute of utilized arithmetic of the USSR Academy of Sciences. The Bureau of IUTAM had allotted a substantial sum for partial monetary aid of younger scientists attending the congress. The 13th Congress was once formally opened on Monday morning on the Kremlin Palace of Congresses by means of Academician N. 1. Muskhelishvili, President of the Congress, and Professor W. T. Koiter, President of IUTAM. Greeting addresses have been provided by way of: Mr. okay. N. Rudnev, Minister, member of the Council of Ministers of the USSR, Academician M. V. Keldysh, President of the USSR Academy of Sciences, Mr. L. N.

Example text

There, the distribution of the velocity field parallel to the wall as a function of distance from it is regarded as the key unknown function U(xa) ; this represents velocities relative to the wall and so its limit as xa -+ 00 is the swimming velocity of the organism while its lower values as xa reduces to its wall value of zero describe the shearing that occurs in the ciliary sublayer. The unknown function U(xa) is now determined as a self-consistent field as follows. Gray and Hancock (1955) give the force with which each cilium acts on the fluid in terms of the velocity of the cilium relative to the fluid, here taken as moving with the velocity (U(xa), 0, 0).

On the contrary the equivalent nodal forces are weak because they are determined from virtual work considerations. If q denotes the boundary nodal displacements of an isolated element, the cartesian components of the displacement field of that element is representable in the form [ ::~:~l = u(x) = Q(x) q + B(x) b, (33) u3 (x) where Q(x) is a matrix of assumed functions (generally low order polynomials) called shaping functions or weighting functions and B(x) a matrix of bubble functions, so-called because they vanish on the boundary and do not consequently influence the motion of the element boundaries.

The recognition that conformity and diffusitivity for finite elements also exchange their roles in the analogies [21J led directly to the concept of setting up diffusive equilibrium models from their analogues, that is discretizing directly the stress-functions. As a matter of fact the discretization of stress functions brings us back to the "Gegenstuck-Verfahren" of Trelttz, where it was applied to the Prandtl torsion function. Because the volume equilibrium equations were automatically satisfied by the very existence and differentiability of the torsion function, Trelttz was able to show that an underestimate of the torsional rigidity occured when the torsion function satisfied simply the boundary conditions, that in fact satisfies surface equilibrium.
