  • Uncertainty and Optimization in Structural Mechanicsby Abdelkhalak El Hami; Radi Bouchaib

    Wiley 2013; US$ 79.95

    Optimization is generally a reduction operation of a definitequantity. This process naturally takes place in our environment andthrough our activities. For example, many natural systems evolve,in order to minimize their potential energy. Modeling thesephenomena then largely relies on our capacity to artificiallyreproduce these processes. In parallel,... more...

  • Cable-Stayed Bridgesby Holger Svensson

    Wiley 2013; US$ 185.00

    The need for large-scale bridges is constantly growing due to theenormous infrastructure development around the world. Since the1970s many of them have been cable-stayed bridges. In 1975 thelargest span length was 404 m, in 1995 it increased to 856 m, andtoday it is 1104 m. Thus the economically efficient range ofcable-stayed bridges is tending to... more...
