Plates and FEM. Surprises and Pitfalls-Johan Blaauwendraad
(42 veces recomendado;11 veces no recomendado)
Not recommend
Recommend
Description of the book The civil engineers use day to day powerful programs but many of them do not know what they are using. This book helps you to interpret the results perfectly and to know if the "input" or the hypotheses used are correct. From the theory of the plates to the orthotropy systems, going through a review of the method of stiffness so used in the calculation programs.

Description of the book Volume III: Fluid Dynamics is intended for readers studying fluid mechanics at a higher level. Although it is an ideal companion volume to Volume One: The Basis, this advanced text also functions as a "stand-alone" volume, accessible to those who have been introduced to the Finite Element Method through a different route.

Structural Shell Analysis: Understanding and Application (Solid Mechanics and Its Applications)-Johan Blaauwendraad, Jeroen H. Hoefakker
(3 veces recomendado;0 veces no recomendado)
Not recommend
Recommend
Description of the book The book deals with thin elastic shells, in particular with cylindrical, conical and spherical types, and with elliptic and hyperbolic paraboloids. The focus is on roofs, chimneys, pressure vessels and storage tanks. Special attention is paid to edge bending disturbance zones, which is indispensable knowledge in FE meshing. A substantial part of the book results from research efforts in the mid 20th century at Delft University of Technology. As such, it is a valuable addition to the body of shell research literature of continuing importance.

Description of the book Volume II:Two main subject areas in solid mechanics are covered here:
1. Non-linear problems (Chapters 1-3 and 10-12) In these the special problems ofsolving non-linear equation systems are addressed.
2. Plates and shells (Chapters 4-9) This section is of course of most interest to thoseengaged in `structural mechanics' and deals with a specic class of problems inwhich one dimension of the structure is small compared to the other two.

Description of the book Describes the complete panorama of supporting structures and their function by describing how loads are sustained and transmitted to the ground. With a minimum of mathematics, the reader is guided through the analysis of some of the world’s most famous designs and structures from a civil engineering perspective. An intuitive approach is taken – the basics of equilibrium analysis are explained by visualizing the internal forces of specific structures with the aid of simple graphical tools. Ideal for anyone who needs an intuitive and practical approach to the design and appropriate sizing of load-bearing structures.

Description of the book Emphasizes actual structural design, not analysis, of multistory buildings for seismic resistance. Strong emphasis is placed on specific detailing requirements for construction. Fundamental design principles are presented to create buildings that respond to a wide range of potential seismic forces, which are illustrated by numerous detailed examples. The discussion includes the design of reinforced concrete ductile frames, structural walls, dual systems, reinforced masonry structures, buildings with restricted ductility and foundation walls. In addition to the examples, full design calculations are given for three prototype structures.

Description of the book Traffic in Towns was an influential report and popular book on urban and transport planning policy. The report warned of the potential damage caused by the motor car, while offering ways to mitigate it. It gave planners a set of policy blueprints to deal with its effects on the urban environment, including traffic containment and segregation, which could be balanced against urban redevelopment, new corridor and distribution roads and precincts. These policies shaped the development of the urban landscape in the UK and some other countries for two or three decades.
