    Uses state-of-the-art computer technology to formulate displacement method with matrix algebra. Facilitates analysis of structural dynamics and applications to earthquake engineering and UBC and IBC seismic building codes. more...

  • Recent Advances in Lifeline Earthquake Engineeringby T. Ariman; M. Hamada; A. C. Singhal; M. A. Haroun; A. S. Cakmak

    Elsevier Science 2017; US$ 72.95

    Lifeline earthquake engineering is the application of all relevant knowledge and skill to provide economically feasible engineering safeguards for critical systems such as energy, transportation, water, power, communications, etc. Natural gas and oil pipelines, water and sewage lines, oil and gas storage facilities, tunnels, power, voice and data... more...

  • Modeling and Control of Vibration in Mechanical Systemsby Chunling Du; Lihua Xie

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 164.95

    From the ox carts and pottery wheels the spacecrafts and disk drives, efficiency and quality has always been dependent on the engineer’s ability to anticipate and control the effects of vibration. And while progress in negating the noise, wear, and inefficiency caused by vibration has been made, more is needed. Modeling and Control of Vibration... more...

  • Optimization of Finite Dimensional Structuresby Makoto Ohsaki

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 79.95

    Originally developed for mechanical and aeronautical engineering, structural optimization is not so easily applied to civil and architectural engineering, as structures in these fields are not mass products, but more often unique structures planned in accordance with specific design requirements. The shape and geometry of such structures are determined... more...

  • Limit Analysis and Concrete Plasticity, Third Editionby M.P. Nielsen; L.C. Hoang

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 188.95

    First published in 1984, Limit Analysis and Concrete Plasticity explains for advanced design engineers the principles of plasticity theory and its application to the design of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures, providing a thorough understanding of the subject, rather than simply applying current design formulas. Updated and revised... more...

  • Structural Acousticsby Joshua E. Greenspon

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 165.95

    From jet engine noise that generates vibrations in the structure of an aircraft, to the sound radiation from the hull of a ship or submarine that makes it identifiable, an understanding of structural acoustics is key in the design process in maritime, automotive, aerospace, and architectural engineering. Building on classic works in the field, Structural... more...

  • Structural Vibrationby C.Y. Wang; C.M. Wang

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 183.95

    Structural Vibration: Exact Solutions for Strings, Membranes, Beams, and Plates offers an introduction to structural vibration and highlights the importance of the natural frequencies in design. It focuses on free vibrations for analysis and design of structures and machine and presents the exact vibration solutions for strings, membranes, beams,... more...

  • Spatial Variation of Seismic Ground Motionsby Aspasia Zerva

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 172.95

    The spatial variation of seismic ground motions denotes the differences in the seismic time histories at various locations on the ground surface. This text focuses on the spatial variability of the motions that is caused by the propagation of the waveforms from the earthquake source through the earth strata to the ground surface, and it brings together... more...

  • Brittle Fracture in Steel Structuresby G. M. Boyd

    Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 31.95

    Brittle Fracture in Steel Structures emphasizes the prevention of brittle fracture in structures fabricated from mild and low alloy steel operating at normal ambient temperatures. This book is divided into seven chapters. Chapter 1 provides the historical background and summarizes numerous case histories of brittle fractures. The nature of the phenomenon... more...

  • Fiber-Reinforced-Plastic (FRP) Reinforcement for Concrete Structuresby David A Hensher; L. Anselin

    Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 72.95

    The use of fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) composites for prestressed and non-prestressed concrete reinforcement has developed into a technology with serious and substantial claims for the advancement of construction materials and methods. Research and development is now occurring worldwide. The 20 papers in this volume make a further contribution in... more...
