  6. Since May 1, 2018 we have added citations and abstracts of many additional papers to the long and downloadable “full bibliography” file available in “PDF” and/or “DOCX” formats on the Bibliography section of this website. This long downloadable “full bibliography” file now has about 9900 pages.

    From now on there will be two downloadable full bibliographies labeled "Part 1" (through 2018 except for some entries in Part 2, 9990 pages) and “Part 2" (primarily 2019 and on). Part 1 will remain essentially unchanged and Part 2 will continue to be a work in progress.

    At the date of our last update notice, September 1, 2018, there were about 400 pages fewer in Part 1 than now exist; therefore, many hundreds of additional citations have been added to Part 1 during the past three months. The new citations were found following the search strategy introduced in May 2017 with added journals listed in the September 1, 2018 news item. That same strategy was used in the present and will be used for the future expansion of Part 2. As of January 1, 2019 Part 2 has about 800 pages. Downloadable *.docx and *.pdf files pertaining to Part 2 were added to the Bibliography page of this website.

  7. Added the following new Shell Buckling Links:
  8. Many broken links were removed.
