During a NATO complicated research Institute in Izmir, Tur­ key, July 1973 on smooth advancements in Engineering Seis­ mology and Earthquake Engineering it emerged debate on Continuum Mechanics points of Geodynamics and Rock Fracture Mechanics will be very welcome. consequently, it used to be made up our minds to hunt NATO sponsorship for a sophisticated learn In­ stitute in this topic. the aim of the recent complex learn Institute used to be to supply a hyperlink among mechanics of continuum media and geo­ dynamic s. by way of bringing jointly a bunch of major scientists from the above fields and contributors actively engaged in learn and purposes within the comparable fields, it used to be believed that fruitful discussions may emerge to facilitate an trade of information, adventure and newly-conceived principles. The Institute aimed basically on the answer of such difficulties as hooked up with the research of rigidity and pressure con­ ditions within the Earth, established reasons of earthquakes, strength unencumber and focal mechanism and seismic wave propagation in­ troducing smooth equipment of continuum and rock fracture mechanics. Secondly to motivate scientists operating in continuum mechanics to open new avenues of study attached with the above difficulties, and seismologists to conform smooth, complicated tools of continuum and rock fracture mechanics to their work.
