This quantity comprises chosen papers provided on the Symposium on "Recent advancements in Non-linear Oscillations of Mechanical Systems", held in Hanoi, Vietnam, from 2 - five March 1999. This Symposium used to be initiated and backed by way of the foreign Union of Theoretical and utilized Mechanics (lUI AM) and organised together with Vietnam nationwide collage, Hanoi. Ihe objective of the Symposium was once to compile scientists energetic in numerous fields of oscillations with the purpose to study the new development in thought of oscillations and engineering functions and to stipulate the customers in its additional achievements to then co-ordinate and direct learn during this box to additional co-operation among scientists and diverse clinical associations. a world clinical Committee was once appointed by means of the Bureau of IUI AM with the subsequent contributors: Nguyen Van Dao (Vietnam, Co-Chairman) E.J. Kreuzer (Germany, Co-Chairman) D.H. van Campen (The Netherlands) F.L. Chernousko (Russia) A.H. Nayfeh (U.S.A) Nguyen Xuan Hung (Vietnam) W.O. Schiehlen (Germany) J.M.T. Thompson (U.K) Y. Veda (Japan). This Committee chosen the contributors to be invited and the papers to be provided on the Symposium. due to this technique, fifty two energetic scientists from sixteen international locations replied to the invitation, and forty two papers have been awarded in lecture and poster dialogue sessions.
