Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Extreme Man-Made and Natural Hazards in Dynamics of Structures, Opatija, Croatia, 28 May - 1 June 2006
The original approach of the book concerns constructing the sufficiently complete framework for dealing with new challenges in man-made and natural hazards, which calls for the expertise from several traditional scientific disciplines

Author index.
This book provides a critical assessment of current knowledge and indicates new challenges which are brought about at present times by fighting man-made and natural hazards in transient analysis of structures. The latter concerns both permanently fixed structures, such as those built to protect people and/or sensitive storage material; or special structures, like bridges and tunnels; and moving structures such as trains, planes, ships or cars.
