Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

This special issue contains almost all of the papers presented during the XIth Symposium on Stability of Structures held in Zakopane (Poland) on 11–15 September 2006, organized by the Department of Strength of Materials and Structures, Technical University of Lodz and the Lodz branch of the Polish Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics. The 29 papers consisted of four keynote lectures together with 25 papers presented during the Symposium. The Stability of Structures Symposium has been organized for 44 years. The first of these took place in Lodz (Poland) in May 1963 due to the initiative of the late Professor Jerzy Leyko, the father of the “Stability of Structures School of Lodz” well recognized in Poland. He was the chairman of several of the Symposia and invited foreign guest researchers working in the domain of stability of structures to participate. The Symposium became a permanent event in the calendar of Polish scientific conferences. For many years, the participation of foreign guests from the Czech Republic, Great Britain, Japan, Russia, Slovakia and Ukraine has raised the rank of this monothematic conference. For the past 10 years, the Symposia have been held in Zakopane, the capital of the Polish Tatra Mountains.
