The iMechanica site is a treasure. The good folks there post not only their recent papers and preprints, but also stuff that’s of interest to a general audience as well. Let me just link to a bunch of these general purpose things that appeared there recently:
- Advice to a young physicist by Walther Bothe.
- 12 steps to a winning research proposal by George A. Hazelrigg of the National Science Foundation.
- Links to “10 Simple Rules” for writing papers and getting published, writing grants, reviewing, …
In addition, there are course notes on offer:
- Mechanical properties of thin films by Bill Nix.
- Nonlinear fracture mechanics by John W. Hutchinson.
Here are some links that should interest materials people:
- Ranking of mechanics-related journals (as of 2004).
- Most cited papers in solid and computational mechanics.
And finally, here are some tips for finding information on iMechanica:
