Saar (who mentions students, but his institutional affiliation is not cited in the book) assembles a reference of structural dynamics Structural dynamics is a subset of structural analysis which covers the behaviour of structures subjected to dynamic loading. Dynamic loads include people, wind, waves, traffic, earthquakes, and blasts. Any structure can be subject to dynamic loading.  principles and data that might be helpful to engineers who regularly tackle design situations involving dynamic loads using the appropriate computer software. He assumes readers will supplement this material with technical information about any particular dynamic problem, and will consult with experts about unusual dynamic design situations. The US office of WIT Press is Computational Mechanics Computational mechanics is the subject/profession concerned with the use of computational methods and devices to study phenomena governed by the principles of mechanics. Before the emergence of computational science (also called scientific computing) as a "third way" besides .
