This advanced and graduate-level text and self-tutorial teaches readers to understand and to apply analytical design principles across the breadth of the engineering sciences. Emphasizing fundamentals, the book addresses the stability of key engineering elements such as rigid-body assemblage, beam-column, beam, rigid frame, thin plate, arch, ring, and shell. Each chapter contains numerous worked-out problems that clarify practical application and aid comprehension of the basics of stability theory, plus end-of-chapter review exercises. Others key features are the citing and comparison of different national building standards, use of non-dimensional parameters, and many tables with much practical data and simplified formula, that enable readers to use them in the design of structural components. First six chapters most suitable for undergraduate-level study and remaining chapters for graduate-level courses.

Written by an international team of contributors and under the aegis of distinguished editors, Analysis and Design of Plated Structures: Volume 1: Stability reviews the wealth of research in this important area and its implications for design, safety, and maintenance. The book considers the various types of buckling that plated structures are likely to encounter and reviews buckling in a range of materials, from steel to various types of composites. The chapter authors discuss the behavior of differing type of components used in steel plated structures. These components include steel members and columns as well as curved, stiffened, corrugated, laminated, and other types of plate design.

This book gives a unified presentation of the field of stability. Buckling and post-buckling states are studied on the basis of total potential energy of structural systems. Emphasis is placed throughout the text on post-buckling analysis and behaviour. The sensitivity of buckling and post-buckling states to changes in design parameters is also discussed as well as changes due to imperfections and damage.

Stability Design of Steel Frames provides a summary of the behavior, analysis and design of structural steel members and frames with flexibly-jointed connections. The book presents the theory and design of structural stability and includes extensions of computer-based analyses for individual members in space with imperfections. It also shows how connection flexibility influences the behavior and design of steel frames and how designers must consider this in a limit-state analysis and design procedure. The clearly written text and extensive bibliography make this a practical book for advanced students, researchers and professionals in civil and structural engineering, as well as a useful supplement to traditional books on the theory and design of structural stability.

This book focuses on the optimization of a geometrically-nonlinear structure under stability constraint. It presents a deep insight into optimization-based and computer-assisted stability design of discrete structures. Coverage combines design sensitivity analysis developed in structural optimization and imperfection-sensitivity analysis developed in stability analysis.

The design of tall buildings and complex structures involves challenging activities, including: scheme design, modelling, structural analysis and detailed design. This book provides structural designers with a systematic approach to anticipate and solve issues for tall buildings and complex structures. This book begins with a clear and rigorous exposition of theories behind designing tall buildings. After this is an explanation of basic issues encountered in the design process. This is followed by chapters concerning the design and analysis of tall building with different lateral stability systems, such as MRF, shear wall, core, outrigger, bracing, tube system, diagrid system and mega frame. The final three chapters explain the design principles and analysis methods for complex and special structures. With this book, researchers and designers will find a valuable reference on topics such as tall building systems, structure with complex geometry, Tensegrity structures, membrane structures and offshore structures. Numerous worked-through examples of existing prestigious projects around the world (such as Jeddah Tower, Shanghai Tower, and Petronas Tower etc.) are provided to assist the reader’s understanding of the topics. • Provides the latest modelling methods in design such as BIM and Parametric Modelling technique. • Detailed explanations of widely used programs in current design practice, such as SAP2000, ETABS, ANSYS, and Rhino. • Modelling case studies for all types of tall buildings and complex structures, such as: Buttressed Core system, diagrid system, Tube system, Tensile structures and offshore structures etc.

The functionality of modern structural, mechanical and electrical or electronic systems depends on their ability to perform under uncertain conditions. Consideration of uncertainties and their effect on system behavior is an essential and integral part of defining systems. In eleven chapters, leading experts present an overview of the current state of uncertainty modeling, analysis and design of large systems in four major areas: finite and boundary element methods (common structural analysis techniques), fatigue, stability analysis, and fault-tolerant systems. The content of this book is unique; it describes exciting research developments and challenges in emerging areas, and provide a sophisticated toolbox for tackling uncertainty modeling in real systems. Contents:Probabilistic Finite Element Analysis of Large Structural Systems (S Mahadevan)Reliability Evaluation of Structures Using Nonlinear SFEM (A Haldar & L-W Gao)Finite Element Method for Stochastic Structures Based on Inverse of Stiffness Matrix (I Elishakoff & Y-J Ren)The Weighted Integral Method and the Variability Response Function as Part of an SFEM Formulation (G Deodatis & L Graham)Response of a Vibrating Structure to Turbulent Wall Pressure: Fluid-Loaded Structure Modes Series and Boundary Element Method (P J T Filippi & D Mazzoni)Reliability-Based Structural Fatigue Damage Evaluation and Maintenance Using Non-Destructive Inspections (Z-W Zhao & A Haldar)Uncertainty Modeling in Structural Stability (B W Yeigh & M Shinozuka)Global Stability Analysis of Nonlinear Dynamical Systems (R Valèry Roy)Dynamic Random Snap-Buckling of Composite Shallow Shells (R Heuer et al.)Buckling Analysis and Design of Imperfection-Sensitive Structures (G V Palassopoulos)Basic Concepts of Fault-Tolerant Computing Design (C Aktouf et al.) Readership: Researchers in systems & knowledge engineering/artificial intelligence, civil, mechanical & electronic engineering, applied physics, applied mathematics, numerical and computing methods. keywords: “This book is a coherent compendium written by leading experts, and offers the reader a sampling of exciting research developments in these areas. It is designed for readers who are familiar with the fundamentals and wish to study a particular topic or use the book as an authoritative reference.” Mathematical Reviews

The book serves the interests and needs of designers, teachers and students of civil engineering. It provides the designers with specific design procedures and the relevant background material to understand the theory and methodology behind the procedures, their limitations and their relevance to the problem on hand. For teachers, this is a good resource book to teach more than one course in geotechnical engineering, both at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The students will find the book a good reference for several courses in geotechnical engineering and in their future professional career. The remaining part of the book, on soil engineering, covers all important problems typically met with in civil engineering practice. Applications of procedures are illustrated with numerous solved examples. Instances where the designer must use his own judgement are also brought out.

Structural Stability in Engineering Practice elucidates the various problems associated with attaining stability, and provides the results for practical use by the design engineer. By presenting a simple and visual description of the physical phenomena, the authors show how to determine the critical loads of various structures, such as frames, arches, building structures, trusses and sandwiches. Special emphasis is given to the post-critical behaviour - essential for assessing the safety of structures - and furthermore to the summation theories that make the solution of complicated stability problems relatively simple.
