The Springer Series in Solid and Structural Mechanics (SSSSM) publishes new developments and advances dealing with any aspect of mechanics of materials and structures, with a high quality. It features original works dealing with mechanical, mathematical, numerical and experimental analysis of structures and structural materials, both taken in the broadest sense. The series covers multi-scale, multi-field and multiple-media problems, including static and dynamic interaction. It also illustrates advanced and innovative applications to structural problems from science and engineering, including aerospace, civil, materials, mechanical engineering and living materials and structures. Within the scope of the series are monographs, lectures notes, references, textbooks and selected contributions from specialized conferences and workshops.
