About the author (1985)

ANTHONY BEDFORD is Professor of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at the University of Texas at Austin. He received his B.S. degree at the University of Texas at Austin, his M.S. degree at the California Institute of Technology, and his Ph.D. degree at Rice University in 1967. He has industrial experience at Douglas Aircraft Company and at TRW, where he did structural dynamics and trajectory studies for the Apollo program. He has been on the faculty of the University of Texas at Austin since 1968.

Dr. Bedford's main professional activity has been education and research in engineering mechanics. He is author or co-author of papers on the mechanics of composite materials and mixtures and four books, including "Engineering Mechanics: Statics" and "Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics" published by Addison Wesley Longman. From 1973 until 1983 he was a consultant to Sandia National Laboratories, Albuquerque, New Mexico.

He is a licensed professional engineer and a member of the American Society for Engineering Education, the Society for Engineering Science, the American Academy of Mechanics, and the Society for Natural Philosophy.

KENNETH LIECHTI is Professor of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at the University of Texas at Austin and holds the E. P. Schoch Professorship in Engineering. He received his B.Sc. in Aeronautical Engineering at Glasgow University and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Aeronautics at the California Institute of Technology. He gained industrial experience at General Dynamics Fort Worth Division prior to joining the faculty of the University of Texas at Austin in 1982.

Dr. Liechti's main areas of teaching and research are in themechanics of materials and fracture mechanics. He is the author or co-author of papers on interfacial fracture, fracture in adhesively bonded joints, and the nonlinear behavior of polymers. He has consulted on fracture problems with several companies.

He is a fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and a member of the Society for Experimental Mechanics, the American Academy of Mechanics, and the Adhesion Society. He is an associate editor of the journal Experimental Mechanics.
