Structural Modeling and Experimental Techniques, Second Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Structural Modeling and Experimental Techniques presents a current treatment of structural modeling for applications in design, research, education, and product development. Providing numerous case studies throughout, the book emphasizes modeling the behavior of reinforced and prestressed concrete and masonry structures.

Structural Modeling and Experimental Techniques:

Concentrates on the modeling of the true inelastic behavior of structures

Provides case histories detailing applications of the modeling techniques to real structures

Discusses the historical background of model analysis and similitude principles governing the design, testing, and interpretation of models

Evaluates the limitations and benefits of elastic models

Analyzes materials for reinforced concrete masonry and steel models

Assesses the critical nature of scale effects of model testing

Describes selected laboratory techniques and loading methods

Contains material on errors as well as the accuracy and reliability of physical modeling

Examines dynamic similitude and modeling techniques for studying dynamic loading of structures

Covers actual applications of structural modeling

This book serves students in model analysis and experimental methods, professionals manufacturing and testing structural models, as well as professionals testing large or full-scale structures - since the instrumentation techniques and overall approaches for testing large structures are very similar to those used in small-scale modeling work.

Book News Annotation:

Presents a current treatment of structural modeling for applications in design, research, education, and product development, concentrating on modeling of behavior of reinforced and prestressed concrete and masonry structures. Views the structural model as a complement to the mathematical model, and offers guidance on deciding when and where models should be used. Discusses instrumentation techniques, particularly strain measurement and interpretation, and includes chapter summaries and problems. This second edition expands coverage of model fabrication techniques, fiber optic sensors, and centrifuge testing.

Synopsis:

This handbook examines the physical modeling techniques for all areas of structural engineering, relying on case studies to illustrate the use of the models. Topics include elastic models; inelastic models; fabrication techniques; loading systems and laboratory techniques; structural models for wind, blast, impact and earthquake loads; and technological aspects of architectural model making. This revision of the first edition, published in 1983, reflects the current developments within this field.
