# Eric Reissner Papers

**Creator:**Reissner, Eric

**Title:**Eric Reissner Papers,

**Date (inclusive):**1930 - 1996

**Extent:**11.60 linear feet (29 archives boxes)

**Abstract:**Papers of Eric Reissner (1913-1996), professor of mathematics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1938-1969) and professor of applied mechanics and engineering sciences at the University of California, San Diego (1970-1979). Reissner's research interests included problems of turbulence and aerodynamic wing theory, the theory of elasticity and problems concerning the behavior of elastic beams, plates and shells. The collection includes biographical materials, Reissner's publications, correspondence, research reports, and teaching materials. The Eric Reissner Papers are arranged in five series: 1) BIOGRAPHICAL MATERIALS, 2) CORRESPONDENCE, 3) WRITINGS, 4) TEACHING MATERIALS, and 5) SUBJECT FILES.
