Author(s): Alberto Carpinteri
Building on the author’s Structural Mechanics Fundamentals, this text presents a complete and uniform treatment of the more advanced topics in structural mechanics, ranging from beam frames to shell structures, from dynamics to buckling analysis, from plasticity to fracture mechanics, from long-span to high-rise civil structures.
-Statically indeterminate beam systems: Method of displacements
-Plates and shells
-Finite element method
-Dynamics of discrete systems
-Dynamics of continuous elastic systems
-Theory of plasticity
-Plane stress and plane strain conditions
-Mechanics of fracture
This book serves as a text for graduate students in structural engineering, as well as a reference for practising engineers and researchers.
