Design and Optimization of Metal Structures Excerpt :

An industrial book that analyses various theoretical problems, optimizes numerical applications and addresses industrial problems such as belt-conveyor bridge, pipeline, wind turbine power, large-span suspended roof and offshore jacket member. Multi-storey frames and pressure vessel-supporting frames are discussed in detail. The book's emphasis is on economy and cost calculation, making it possible to compare costs and make significant savings in the design stages, by, for example, comparing the costs of stiffened and un-stiffened structural versions of plates and shells. In this respect, this book will be an invaluable aid for designers, students, researchers and manufacturers to find better, optimal, competitive structural solutions.

Coupled Instabilities in Metal Structures Excerpt :

The subject of coupled instabilities is a fascinating field of research with a wide range of practical applications, particularly in the analysis and design of metal structures. Despite the excellent body of existing results concerning coupled instability structural behaviour, this situation has not yet been adequately translated into design rules or specifications. In fact, only to a small extent do modern design codes for metal structures take advantage of the significant progress made in the field. This book, which contains all the invited general reports and selected papers presented at the Third International Conference on “Coupled Instabilities in Metal Structures” (CIMS '2000), should provide a meaningful contribution towards filling the gap between research and practice. Contents:Theoretical BackgroundsNumerical Simulation and Computational ModelsBar MembersExperimental TechniquesPlated StructuresShell StructuresFrames and Triangulated StructuresCoupled Instabilities Under Dynamic LoadingCoupled Instabilities in Nonlinear MaterialsOptimum Design CriteriaReliability and Progress in Design Codes Readership: Researchers, academics and graduate students in civil engineering and engineering mechanics.

Joining of Polymer Metal Hybrid Structures Excerpt :

A comprehensive introduction to the concepts of joining technologies for hybrid structures This book introduces the concepts of joining technology for polymer-metal hybrid structures by addressing current and new joining methods. This is achieved by using a balanced approach focusing on the scientific features (structural, physical, chemical, and metallurgical/polymer science phenomena) and engineering properties (mechanical performance, design, applications, etc.) of the currently available and new joining processes. It covers such topics as mechanical fastening, adhesive bonding, advanced joining methods, and statistical analysis in joining technology. Joining of Polymer-Metal Hybrid Structures: Principles and Applications is structured by joining principles, in adhesion-based, mechanical fastened, and direct-assembly methods. The book discusses such recent technologies as friction riveting, friction spot joining and ultrasonic joining. This is used for applications where the original base material characteristics must remain unchanged. Additional sections cover the main principles of statistical analysis in joining technology (illustrated with examples from the field of polymer-metal joining). Joining methods discussed include mechanical fastening (bolting, screwing, riveting, hinges, and fits of polymers and composites), adhesive bonding, and other advanced joining methods (friction staking, laser welding, induction welding, etc.). Provides a combined engineering and scientific approach used to describe principles, properties, and applications of polymer-metal hybrid joints Describes the current developments in design of experiments and statistical analysis in joining technology with emphasis on joining of polymer-metal hybrid structures Covers recent innovations in joining technology of polymer-metal hybrid joints including friction riveting, friction spot joining, friction staking, and ultrasonic joining Principles illustrated by pictures, 3D-schemes, charts,

Probabilistic Structural Mechanics Handbook Excerpt :

The need for a comprehensive book on probabilistic structural mechanics that brings together the many analytical and computational methods developed over the years and their applications in a wide spectrum of industries-from residential buildings to nuclear power plants, from bridges to pressure vessels, from steel structures to ceramic structures-became evident from the many discussions the editor had with practising engineers, researchers and professors. Because no single individual has the expertise to write a book with such a di.verse scope, a group of 39 authors from universities, research laboratories, and industries from six countries in three continents was invited to write 30 chapters covering the various aspects of probabilistic structural mechanics. The editor and the authors believe that this handbook will serve as a reference text to practicing engineers, teachers, students and researchers. It may also be used as a textbook for graduate-level courses in probabilistic structural mechanics. The editor wishes to thank the chapter authors for their contributions. This handbook would not have been a reality without their collaboration.
