Uncertainty and Optimization in Structural Mechanics

Optimization is usually a discount operation of a distinct volume. This strategy evidently happens in the environment and during our actions. for instance, many ordinary structures evolve, to be able to reduce their power strength. Modeling those phenomena then mostly is determined by our potential to artificially reproduce those procedures.

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 dep. of Engineering, collage of Cambridge. It includes a sequence of papers contributed by means of his former scholars, colleagues, and acquaintances. Chris Calladine's study has ranged very commonly around the box of struc­ tural mechanics, with a selected specialize in the plastic deformation of solids and buildings, and the behaviour of thin-shell constructions.

Geotechnics and Heritage: Case Histories

Conservation of monuments and old websites is likely one of the such a lot demanding difficulties dealing with glossy civilization. It comprises a number of cultural, humanistic, social, technical, cost-effective and administrative components, intertwining in inextricable styles. The complexity of the subject is such that directions or options for intervention thoughts and layout methods are tough to set.

Irregularity in business cycles seems to be a normal historical feature. Whether we focus on period, amplitude or patterns of co-movements we do not observe stable long run regularities that can be depicted as ‘stylised facts’. Explaining irregularity opens up a number of challenges in theoretical research on business cycles, within both the impulse and propagation perspectives to business cycles. The examples considered in this survey suggest that policy regimes, long-run sectoral structural change, changing international inter-relatedness have had important effects.

If we assume that the macroeconomic relationships of the period 1870–1909 are similar to those for the period 1909–1928 then we observe a significantly lower amplitude than in the original Kuznets series. However, it is unlikely that these quantitative relationships will remain stable over such long periods. Moreover, the existence of long swings in the American economy suggests that Romer’s revisions are unlikely to be correct because the period 1909–1928 is mainly capturing an upswing phase in the American economy; the behaviour of the 1930s, may be more relevant to depicting depression phases such as 1890s.
