"Smart" materials respond to environmental stimuli with particular changes in some variables. For that reason they are often also called responsive materials. Depending on changes in some external conditions, "smart" materials change either their properties (mechanical, electrical, appearance), their structure or composition, or their functions. Mostly, "smart" materials are embedded in systems whose inherent properties can be favourably changed to meet performance needs. Smart materials and structures have widespread applications in: 1. Materials science: composites, ceramics, processing science, interface science, sensor/actuator materials, chiral materials, conducting and chiral polymers, electrochromic materials, liquid crystals, molecular-level smart materials, biomaterials. 2. Sensing and actuation: electromagnetic, acoustic, chemical and mechanical sensing and actuation, single-measurand sensors, multiplexed multimeasurand distributed sensors and actuators, sensor/actuator signal processing, compatibility of sensors and actuators with conventional and advanced materials, smart sensors for materials and composites processing. 3. Optics and electromagnetics: optical fibre technology, active and adaptive optical systems and components, tuneable high-dielectric phase shifters, tuneable surface control. 4. Structures: smart skins for drag and turbulence control, other applications in aerospace/hydrospace structures, civil infrastructures, transportation vehicles, manufacturing equipment, repairability and maintainability. 5. Control: structural acoustic control, distributed control, analogue and digital feedback control, real-time implementation, adaptive structure stability, damage implications for structural control. 6. Information processing: neural networks, data processing, data visualisation and reliability. This book presents leading research from around the globe in this field.

These proceedings present a selection of papers presented at the 3rd International Conference on Materials Mechanics and Management 2017 (IMMM 2017), which was jointly organized by the Departments of Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Architecture of College of Engineering Trivandrum. Developments in the fields of materials, mechanics and management have paved the way for overall improvements in all aspects of human life. The quest for meeting the requirements of the rapidly increasing population has led to revolutionary construction and production technologies aiming at optimum management and use of natural resources. The objective of this conference was to bring together experts from academic institutions, industries, research organizations and professionals for sharing of knowledge, expertise and experience in the emerging trends related to Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Architecture. IMMM 2017 provided opportunities for young researchers to actively engage in research discussions, new research interests, research ethics and professional development.

Shells are basic structural elements of modern technology and everyday life. Examples of shell structures in technology include automobile bodies, water and oil tanks, pipelines, silos, wind turbine towers, and nanotubes. Nature is full of living shells such as leaves of trees, blooming flowers, seashells, cell membranes or wings of insects. In the human body arteries, the eye shell, the diaphragm, the skin and the pericardium are all shells as well. Shell Structures: Theory and Applications, Volume 4 contains 132 contributions presented at the 11th Conference on Shell Structures: Theory and Applications (Gdansk, Poland, 11-13 October 2017). The papers reflect a wide spectrum of scientific and engineering problems from theoretical modelling through strength, stability and dynamic behaviour, numerical analyses, biomechanic applications up to engineering design of shell structures. Shell Structures: Theory and Applications, Volume 4 will be of interest to academics, researchers, designers and engineers dealing with modelling and analyses of shell structures. It may also provide supplementary reading to graduate students in Civil, Mechanical, Naval and Aerospace Engineering.

Five main topics of computational plasticity are treated by experts in the field with latest research results, such as consistent linearizations and finite element techniques, the numerical analysis for stable volume-preserving time-integration at the plastic flow rule, the analysis and finite-element computation of shearband localizations and also of shake down load-factors for arbitrary non-linear kinematic hardening materials. The aim was primarely an integrated representation of the mathematical models, the analysis of numerical methods and the newest algorithms for the consistent and stable computation of large dimensional systems. The significance should be seen in the collection of textbook-like treatments of important new results from wellknown scientists.
