These Proceedings contain the papers presented at the 4th International Symposium on Impact Engineering, held in Kumamoto, Japan, on 16-18 July 2001. The primary objective of the international series of Impact Engineering is to provide a forum for the presentation of recent progress in Impact Engineering and its related fields, both in terms of fundamental research and industrial application including automotive and aerospace engineering. This volume includes more than 150 papers presented at the Symposium which covers the latest updated research results in various series such as ”testing methods and behavior of materials at high strain rates”, ”dynamic deformation and fracture under impact” and ”explosion, shock wave and their applications” and others. This volume will serve as memoirs to these efforts for the scientists and engineers who are working in the field of mechanics and materials and others.
