A special edition of Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering was dedicated to J. Tinsley Oden, aerospace engineering professor at The University of Texas at Austin, in honor of his 70th birthday. This issue features the latest developments in the areas of computational mechanics and scientific computation to which he has contributed. Oden also is praised for his seminal contributions to those scientific areas throughout his distinguished career. In 1974, Oden became the founding Director of the Texas Institute for Computational Mechanics (TICOM), which has transformed to the present-day Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences (ICES). He has also authored over 500 scientific publications ranging from books and conference papers to monographs.
Oden holds the Cockrell Family Regents Chair in Engineering No. 2 and the Peter O’Donnell, Jr. Centennial Chair in Computing Systems. In addition, he holds a courtesy appointment in the Department of Mathematics.
