Advanced Finite Element Method in Structural Engineering by Yu-Qiu Long, Song Cen, Zhi-Fei Long

By Yu-Qiu Long, Song Cen, Zhi-Fei Long

Complex Finite point technique in Structural Engineering systematically introduces the learn paintings at the Finite point procedure (FEM), which used to be accomplished by way of Prof. Yu-qiu lengthy and his examine team long ago 25 years. Seven unique theoretical achievements - for example, the Generalized Conforming aspect procedure, to call one -  and their purposes within the fields of structural engineering and computational mechanics are mentioned intimately. The booklet additionally indicates the recent concepts for fending off 5 problems that exist in conventional FEM (shear-locking challenge of thick plate components; sensitivity challenge to mesh distortion; non-convergence challenge of non-conforming components; accuracy loss challenge of pressure suggestions through displacement-based components; tension singular element challenge) by using foregoing achievements.

Uncertainty and Optimization in Structural Mechanics

Optimization is usually a discount operation of a distinct volume. This strategy certainly occurs in our surroundings and during our actions. for instance, many usual platforms evolve, on the way to reduce their capability power. Modeling those phenomena then mostly will depend on our ability to artificially reproduce those techniques.

Concrete Formwork Systems (Civil and Environmental Engineering) (Civil and Environmental Engineering Series, Vol. 2)

Bargains insights on currently-used concrete formwork constructions, from category, method elements and fabrics' houses to choice and development necessities and tactics, whereas contemplating product caliber, labour, defense and fiscal components all through. The textual content info hand-set, crane-dependent and crane-independent platforms.

New Approaches to Structural Mechanics, Shells and Biological Structures

This Festschrift marks the retirement of Professor Chris Calladine, FRS after forty two years at the instructing employees of the dept of Engineering, college of Cambridge. It features a sequence of papers contributed through his former scholars, colleagues, and neighbors. Chris Calladine's examine has ranged very greatly around the box of struc­ tural mechanics, with a selected concentrate on the plastic deformation of solids and constructions, and the behaviour of thin-shell constructions.

Geotechnics and Heritage: Case Histories

Conservation of monuments and historical websites is without doubt one of the so much difficult difficulties dealing with sleek civilization. It comprises a variety of cultural, humanistic, social, technical, low-cost and administrative components, intertwining in inextricable styles. The complexity of the subject is such that directions or techniques for intervention innovations and layout ways are tough to set.
