Special issue dedicated to Progessor Ray W. Ogden: Nonlinear Continuum Theories

This issue of the International Journal of Nonlinear Mechanics is dedicated to Professor Ray W. Ogden in recognition of his transformative research in nonlinear solid mechanics and for being awarded the William Prager Medal by the Society of Engineering Science in 2010.

Professor Ogden, over a period of four decades, has made numerous seminal contributions which improve our understanding of elastic solids subject to large deformations. Specifically, he has been concerned with modeling the elastic response through the development of strain-energy functions, which have subsequently been used both in theoretical analysis and in many engineering applications.

This special issue of IJNM contains papers submitted by many of Ray's friends, collaborators and former students from around the world to congratulate him on his scientific career.
