This book contains thirty peer-reviewed papers that are based on the presentations made at the symposium on "Damage Mechanics in Engineering Materials" on the occasion of the Joint ASME/ASCE/SES Mechanics Conference (McNU97), held in Evanston, Illinois, June 28-July 2, 1997. The key area of discussion was on the constitutive modeling of damage mechanics in engineering materials encompassing the following topics: macromechanics/micromechanical constitutive modeling, experimental procedures, numerical modeling, inelastic behavior, interfaces, damage, fracture, failure, computational methods.
The book is divided into six parts:
Study of damage mechanics. Localization and damage. Damage in brittle materials. Damage in metals and metal matrix composites. Computational aspects of damage models. Damage in polymers and elastomers.
For engineers and researchers interested in both theoretical treatment and experimental investigation of damage in materials.

George Z. Voyiadjis is the Boyd Professor at the Louisiana State University, in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. This is the highest professorial rank awarded by the Louisiana State University System. He joined the faculty of the University of Louisiana State University in 1980. Voyiadjis’ primary research interest is in damage mechanics of metals, metal matrix composites, and ceramics with emphasis on the theoretical modeling, numerical simulation of material behavior, and experimental correlation. Dr. Voyiadjis’ research has been performed on developing numerical models that aim at simulating the damage and dynamic failure response of advanced engineering materials and structures under high-speed impact loading conditions.
He has over 164 referred journal articles and 14 books (8 as editor) to his credit. Over forty graduate students (21 Ph. D.) completed their degrees under his direction. He has also supervised eleven postdoctoral associates. Voyiadjis has been extremely successful in securing more than $8.0 million in research funds as a principal investigator from the National Science Foundation, the Department of Defence, the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, the Department of Transportation, and major companies such as IBM, and Martin Marietta.
He has been invited to give theme presentations and lectures in many countries around the world. He has also been invited as guest editor in numerous volumes of the Journal of Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering, International Journal of Plasticity, Journal of Engineering Mechanics of the ASCE, and Journal of Mechanics of Materials. These special issues focus in the areas of damage mechanics, structures, fracture mechanics, localization, and bridging of length scales. He is currently a Fellow in the American Society of Civil Engineers, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and the American Academy of Mechanics.
