  • Cost Optimization of Structuresby Hojjat Adeli; Kamal C Sarma

    Wiley 2006; US$ 129.00

    While the weight of a structure constitutes a significant part of the cost, a minimum weight design is not necessarily the minimum cost design. Little attention in structural optimization has been paid to the cost optimization problem, particularly of realistic three-dimensional structures. Cost optimization is becoming a priority in all civil engineering... more...

  • Structural Dynamic Analysis with Generalized Damping Modelsby Sondipon Adhikari

    Wiley 2014; US$ 129.00

    Since Lord Rayleigh introduced the idea of viscous damping in his classic work "The Theory of Sound" in 1877, it has become standard practice to use this approach in dynamics, covering a wide range of applications from aerospace to civil engineering. However, in the majority of practical cases this approach is adopted more for mathematical convenience... more...
