The IUTAM Symposium on Macro- and Micro-Mechanics of High Velocity Deformation and Fracture (MMMHVDF) (August 12 - 15, 1985) was held at Science Council of Japan, under the sponsor ship of IUTAM, Science Council of Japan, Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, The Commemorative Association for the Japan World Exposition (1970), and The Japan Society for Aeronautical and Space Sciences. The proposal of the symposium was accepted by the General Assembly of IUTAM, and the scientists mentioned below were appointed by the Bureau of IUTAM to serve as member of the Scientific Committee. The main object of the Symposium was to make a general survey of recent developments in the re search of high velocity solid mechanics and to explore further new ideas for dealing with unsettled problems, of fundamental nature as well as of practical importance. The subjects covered theoretical, experimental, and numerical fields in macro- and micro-mechanics associated with high velocity de formatio~ and fracture in soldis, covering metals, ceramics, polymers, and composites.
