Handbook of Structural Life Assessment

Ibrahim, Raouf A.


This important, self-contained reference deals with structural life assessment (SLA) and structural health monitoring (SHM) in a combined form. SLA periodically evaluates the state and condition of a structural system

Uncertainty and Optimization in Structural Mechanics

Hami, Abdelkhalak El


Optimization is generally a reduction operation of a definite quantity. This process naturally takes place in our environment and through our activities. For example, many natural systems evolve, in order to minimize their potential energy. Modeling these phenomena then largely relies on our capacity to artificially reproduce

Non-local Structural Mechanics

Adhikari, Sondipon


Serving as a review on non-local mechanics, this book provides an introduction to non-local elasticity theory for static, dynamic and stability analysis in a wide range of nanostructures.  The authors draw on their own research experience to present fundamental and complex theories
