Structural engineering (General)

  • Aeroelastic vibrations and stability of plates and shellsby Sergey D. Algazin; Igor A. Kijko

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 238.00

    Back-action of wind onto wings causes vibrations, endangering the whole structure. By careful choices of geometry, materials and damping, hazardous effects on wind engines, planes, turbines and cars can be avoided. This book gives an overview of aerodynamics and mechanics behind these problems and describes a range of mechanical effects.... more...

  • Mechanical Vibrationsby Michel Geradin; Daniel J. Rixen

    Wiley 2014; US$ 130.00

    Mechanical Vibrations: Theory and Application to Structural Dynamics, Third Edition is a comprehensively updated new edition of the popular textbook. It presents the theory of vibrations in the context of structural analysis and covers applications in mechanical and aerospace engineering. Although keeping the same overall structure, the content... more...

  • Numerical Structural Analysisby Steven O'Hara; Carisa H. Ramming

    Momentum Press 2014; US$ 29.95

    As structural engineers move further into the age of digital com-putation and rely more heavily on computers to solve problems, it remains paramount that they understand the basic mathemat-ics and engineering principles used to design and analyze build-ing structures. The link between the basic concepts and appli-cation to real world problems is one... more...

  • Eurocode 3 Bemessung und Konstruktion von Stahlbautenby bauforumstahl e.V.

    Wiley 2014; US$ 93.95

    Für die praktische Anwendung von Eurocode 3 DIN EN 1993 Teil 1-1 "Bemessung und Konstruktion von Stahlbauten; Allgemeine Regeln Hochbau" wird mit diesem Buch eine konsolidierte Normfassung vorgelegt: Diese besteht in dem berichtigten Eurocode 3-Text, der mit den nationalen Regelungen in den jeweiligen Absätzen, Gleichungen und Bildern zu... more...

  • Inverse Engineering Handbookby Keith A. Woodbury

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 241.00

    Inverse problems have been the focus of a growing number of research efforts over the last 40 years-and rightly so. The ability to determine a "cause" from an observed "effect" is a powerful one. Researchers now have at their disposal a variety of techniques for solving inverse problems, techniques that go well beyond those useful for relatively simple... more...

  • Earthquake Engineering Handbookby Charles Scawthorn; Wai-Fah Chen

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 283.00

    Earthquakes are nearly unique among natural phenomena - they affect virtually everything within a region, from massive buildings and bridges, down to the furnishings within a home. Successful earthquake engineering therefore requires a broad background in subjects, ranging from the geologic causes and effects of earthquakes to understanding the impact... more...

  • Maintenance and Safety of Aging Infrastructureby Dan Frangopol; Yiannis Tsompanakis

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 179.95

    This book presents the latest research findings in the field of maintenance and safety of aging infrastructure. The invited contributions provide an overview of the use of advanced computational and/or experimental techniques in damage and vulnerability assessment as well as maintenance and retrofitting of aging structures and infrastructures such... more...

  • Earthquake Ground Motionby S. Syngellakis

    WIT Press 2014; US$ 176.00

    In the first of two parts, the book deals with issues relating to the characterisation and the rational definition of seismic input. It begins with a study of earthquake records that leads to the identification of their damage potential parameters. The second part deals with ground motion effects on foundation elements and structural integrity. more...

  • Schwellenräumeby Till Boettger

    Birkhäuser 2014; US$ 84.00

    Was ist ein Schwellenraum? Auftakt, Dazwischen, Schranke? Innen oder außen? Der Schwellenraum ist alles zusammen, meist sogar gleichzeitig. Till Boettger hat sich in Lehr- und Forschungsprojekten mit der Inszenierung des Ankommens und Empfangens befasst. Er hat räumliche Übergänge exemplarisch anhand von sechs Kulturbauten renommierter Architekten... more...

  • Computational Methods for Reinforced Concrete Structuresby ; ; Ulrich ler-Combe

    Wiley 2014; US$ 51.50

    The book covers the application of numerical methods to reinforced concrete structures. To analyze reinforced concrete structures linear elastic theories are inadequate because of cracking, bond and the nonlinear and time dependent behavior of both concrete and reinforcement. These effects have to be considered for a realistic assessment of the behavior... more...
