This special edition of the Journal comprises the collection of papers presented at a conference held at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, to celebrate the work of Professor Jim Rhodes. The conference theme, Thin Walled Structures, encapsulates the technical field in which Professor Rhodes has been at the forefront for over 40 years. Indeed, it is appropriate that the conference bore the same name as the present Journal, which Professor Rhodes founded in 1983. The special event, held over 2 days, focussed on five specific technical themes, which Professor Rhodes has contributed to over the years, namely Cold Formed Steel (6 papers)-Chaired by Dr. Martin MacDonald, Glasgow Caledonian University; Buckling and Thin Walled Systems (7 papers)-Chaired by Professor Joe Loughlan, Loughborough University; Impact and Dynamical Systems (5 papers)-Chaired by Dr. Marcus Wheel, University of Strathclyde; Composites (5 papers)-Chaired by Professor William M.
