About these proceedings


This book comprises select proceedings of the 63rd Congress of the Indian Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (ISTAM) held in Bangalore, in December 2018. Latest research in computational, experimental, and applied mechanics is presented in the book. The chapters are broadly classified into two sections - (i) fluid mechanics and (ii) solid mechanics. Each section covers computational and experimental studies on various contemporary topics such as aerospace dynamics and propulsion, atmospheric sciences, boundary layers, compressible flow, environmental fluid dynamics, control structures, fracture and crack, viscoelasticity, and mechanics of composites. The contents of this book will serve as a useful reference to students, researchers, and practitioners interested in the broad field of mechanics.
