Nonlinear Structural Mechanics: Theory, Dynamical Phenomena and Modeling

Nonlinear Structural Mechanics: Theory, Dynamical Phenomena and Modeling Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nonlinear Structural Mechanics: Theory, Dynamical Phenomena and Modeling offers a concise, coherent presentation of the theoretical framework of nonlinear structural mechanics, computational methods, applications, parametric investigations of nonlinear phenomena and their mechanical interpretation towards design. The theoretical and computational tools that enable the formulation, solution, and interpretation of nonlinear structures are presented in a systematic fashion so as to gradually attain an increasing level of complexity of structural behaviors, under the prevailing assumptions on the geometry of deformation, the constitutive aspects and the loading scenarios. Readers will find a treatment of the foundations of nonlinear structural mechanics towards advanced reduced models, unified with modern computational tools in the framework of the prominent nonlinear structural dynamic phenomena while tackling both the mathematical and applied sciences. Nonlinear Structural Mechanics: Theory, Dynamical Phenomena and Modeling is an excellent reference for engineers of various disciplines, students, and researchers involved with nonlinear structural mechanics and dynamics.
