  • Bridge Design and Evaluationby Gongkang Fu

    Wiley 2013; US$ 130.00

    A succinct, real-world approach to complete bridge system design and evaluation Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) and Load and Resistance Factor Rating (LRFR) are design and evaluation methods that have replaced or offered alternatives to other traditional methods as the new standards for designing and load-rating U.S. highway bridges.... more...

  • 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...
