The IUTAM Symposium on Probabilistic tools within the Mechanics of Solids and constructions, devoted to the reminiscence of Waloddi Weibull, used to be held in Stockholm, Sweden, June 19-21, 1984, at the initiative of the Swedish nationwide Committee for Mech anics and the Aeronautical study Institute of Sweden, FFA. the aim of the symposium was once to compile mathema ticians that strengthen the idea of stochastic strategies and strategies for reliability research, with engineers that observe those theories and techniques to version quite a bit, strengths and constructions for the development of structural security. Waloddi Weibull was once a pioneer during this box along with his many publi cations from the thirties till his loss of life in 1979. He additionally took an lively half within the formation of the overseas Union of Theoretical and utilized Mechanics in the course of the forties, and in this case initiated origin of the Swedish nationwide Committee for Mechanics, in which Sweden joined IUTAM as a member. 116 contributors from 21 international locations attended the symposium, and fifty five invited papers have been offered in 7 medical sessions.
