73: Mechanics of solids
Mechanics of solids: questions of elasticity and plasticity, wave propagation, engineering, and topics in specific solids such as soils.

This section will be deleted from the Mathematics Subject Classification starting in the year 2000; a new section 74: Mechanics of deformable solids will be added which will cover most of the same material.
