In Memoriam: William S. Klug

On June 1, 2016, the Computational Mechanics community lost one of its own, William S. Klug, through a senseless and tragic act of violence. Bill, as he was known to all, was an esteemed colleague and friend, a doting husband and father, an educator, a scientist and a gentleman. He touched all he contacted, with his affable and sunny disposition, his enthusiasm for teaching and scientific research, his devotion to family, colleagues and students.

What is computational mechanics

Computational Mechanics (CM) is concerned with the use of computational methods and devices to study events governed by the principles of mechanics. CM is a fundamentally important part of computational science and engineering, concerned with the use of computational approaches to characterize, predict and simulate physical events and engineering systems governed by the laws of mechanics.
