The division of the Solid Mechanics topic seems very confusing and redundant. From what I understand, the most common divion of the mechanics field seems to be Statics and Dynamics, then beneath Statics is Mechanics of Materials which covers material properties, stress/strain relationships and deflection. It seems like there is a lot of great content in this topic, but it seems confusing when the sub-categories are all visible at a top level. For Example, Elasticity, Plasticity, Fracture, Fatigue could all be sections of Mechanics of Materials. MinosDis 07:53, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
