Computational methods in fracture mechanics : special topic by M. H. Aliabadi, A. Cisilino

By M. H. Aliabadi, A. Cisilino

The lifestyles of crack-like flaws can't be precluded in any engineering constitution. even as, the expanding call for for strength- and material-conservation dictates that buildings be designed with smaller and smaller security elements. as a result, actual quantitative estimates of the flaw-tolerance of constructions are of direct predicament to the prevention of fracture in load-bearing parts of all kinds: Read more...

Uncertainty and Optimization in Structural Mechanics

Optimization is mostly a discount operation of a distinct volume. This approach evidently occurs in our surroundings and during our actions. for instance, many normal platforms evolve, as a way to reduce their capability power. Modeling those phenomena then principally depends on our means to artificially reproduce those strategies.

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

Deals insights on currently-used concrete formwork buildings, from category, procedure parts and fabrics' houses to choice and development necessities and strategies, whereas contemplating product caliber, labour, safeguard and monetary 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 educating employees of the dep. of Engineering, collage of Cambridge. It encompasses a sequence of papers contributed through his former scholars, colleagues, and neighbors. Chris Calladine's learn has ranged very commonly around the box of struc­ tural mechanics, with a specific specialise in the plastic deformation of solids and buildings, and the behaviour of thin-shell constructions.

Geotechnics and Heritage: Case Histories

Conservation of monuments and historical websites is among the so much tough difficulties dealing with glossy civilization. It contains a variety of cultural, humanistic, social, technical, cost-effective and administrative elements, intertwining in inextricable styles. The complexity of the subject is such that guidance or thoughts for intervention concepts and layout techniques are tough to set.
