These Proceedings contain the papers presented at the 1stAsian Pacific Congress on Computational Mechanics held in Sydney, on 20-23 November 2001. The theme of the first Congress of the Asian-Pacific Association for Computational Mechanics in the new millennium is New Frontiers for the New Millennium. The papers cover such new frontiers as micromechanics, contact mechanics, environmental geomechanics, chemo-thermo-mechanics, inverse techniques, homogenization, meshless methods, smart materials/smart structures and graphic visualization, besides the general topics related to the application of finite element and boundary element methods in structural mechanics, fluid mechanics, geomechanics and biomechanics.... indicate that the member will be stable while undergoing finite deflections and that it is possible to develop such reasonably accurate solutions for nonlinear beam-columns. ...
