Design-Oriented Analysis of Structures: A Unified Approach by (auth.)

By (auth.)

This booklet was once built whereas i used to be instructing graduate classes on research, layout and optimization of buildings, within the usa, Europe and Israel. Structural research is a major a part of any layout challenge, and the research usually has to be repeated time and again throughout the layout strategy. a lot paintings has been performed on design-oriented research of constructions lately and plenty of stories were released. the aim of the ebook is to gather jointly chosen themes of this literature and to give them in a unified procedure. It meets the necessity for a normal textual content protecting the fundamental options and strategies in addition to fresh advancements during this sector. this could end up priceless to scholars, researchers, experts and working towards engineers fascinated with research and layout of buildings. earlier books on structural research don't hide many of the fabric awarded within the booklet. The booklet bargains with the matter of a number of repeated analyses (reanalysis) of constructions that's universal to various research and layout projects. Reanalysis is required in lots of components resembling structural optimization, research of broken constructions, nonlinear research, probabilistic research, managed constructions, shrewdpermanent constructions and adaptive constructions. it truly is concerning a variety of purposes in such fields as Aerospace Engineering, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture.

Example text

The CA method and the Sherman-Morrison formula both find that the change in nodal displacements due to a change in the cross section area of a truss member is a multiple of the response to a pair of collinear forces acting at the ends of the member. It has been shown also that this result can be generalized to any structural member such as a frame element or a plate element. 2. The performance of the CA method in reanalysis of damaged structures, including topological changes in dynamic reanalysis of grillage and frame structures, was studied in the late nineties [46 48].
