The volume contains the proceedings of the international conference New Trends in Continuum Mechanics, held at Constanta, Romania between September 8-12, 2003. The conference was devoted to all domains of continuum mechanics; it also included a minisymposium on homogenization and its applications and a section devoted to numerical methods. The volume contains thirty-seven refereed papers; among the subjects covered, are: theoretical and laboratory modelling, mathematical modelling in biology, oil recovery, contact problems with friction, studies on different materials, non-Newtonian fluids, electrorheological and magnetorheological fluids, thermo-mechanical and electro-mechanical problems in solids.

A publication of the Theta Foundation. Distributed worldwide, except in Romania, by the AMS.
