R. Subramanian ... 1048 pages - Publisher: Oxford University Press; 2nd edition (November, 2010) ... Language: English - ISBN-10: 0198061102 - ISBN-13: 978-0198061106.

Beginning with an introduction to the basic concepts of stresses in simple and composite elements, strains, and deformation of solids, the book moves through discussions on loads and stresses on the beam, which is a common structural element, torsion, and beam deflection. It then discusses columns and analysis of stresses in two dimensions. the boko also deals with strain energy concepts and their applications. The book provides an exhaustive coverage of important topics such as temperature stresses. elastic constants, bending moments, shear forces, theory of simple bending, analysis and design of shafts, stepped, indeterminate and compound shafts, close- and open-coiled helical springs, Euler equations and Rankine formula for columns, and Mohr's circle. TO reinforce the theoretical concepts, the text is supplemented by a large number of worked-out examples with step-by-step solution procedures as well as a large number of review questions and exercise problems. The text is also well supported by a large number of detailed illustrations.

Alan Morris .... 380 pages - Publisher: Wiley; (February, 2008) ... Language: English - ISBN-10: 0470018321 - ISBN-13: 978-0470018323.

Many books have been written about the finite element method; little however has been written about procedures that assist a practicing engineer in undertaking an analysis in such a way that errors and uncertainties can be controlled. In A Practical Guide to Reliable Finite Element Modelling, Morris addresses this important area. His book begins by introducing the reader to finite element analysis (FEA), covering the fundamental principles of the method, whilst also outlining the potential problems involved. He then establishes consistent methods for carrying out analyses and obtaining accurate and reliable results, concluding with a new method for undertaking error control led analyses which is illustrated by means of two case studies. The book addresses a number of topics that: Systematically cover an introduction to FEA, how computers build linear-static and linear-dynamic finite element models, the identification of error sources, error control methods and error-controlled analyses. + Enable the reader to support the design of complex structures with reliable, repeatable analyses using the finite element method. + Provide a basis for establishing good practice that could underpin a legal defence in the event of a claim for negligence. A Practical Guide to Reliable Finite Element Modelling will appeal to practising engineers engaged in conducting regular finite element analyses, particularly those new to the field. It will also be a resource for postgraduate students and researchers addressing problems associated with errors in the finite element method.

Fundamentals of Continuum Mechanics of Soils provides a long-needed general scheme for the study of the important yet problematic material of soil. It closes the gap between two disciplines, soil mechanics and con- tinuum mechanics, showing that the familiar concepts of soil mechanics evolve directly from continuum mechanics. It confirms concepts such as pore pressures, cohesion and dependence of the shear stress on consolidation, and rejects the view that continuum mechanics cannot be applied to a material such as soil. The general concepts of continuum mechanics, field equations and constitutive equations are discussed. It is shown how the theory of mixtures evolves from these equations and how, along with energetics and irrevers- ible thermodynamics, it can be applied to soils. The discussion also sheds light on some aspects of mechanics of materials, especially compressible materials. Examples are the introduction of the Hencky measure of strain, the requirement of dual constitutive equations, and the dependence of the spent internal energy on the stored internal energy. Researchers in engineering mechanics and material sciences may find that the results of experiments on soils can be generalized and extended to other materials. The book is a reference text for students familiar with the fundamentals of mechanics, for scholars of soil engineering, and for soil scientists. It is also suitable as an advanced undergraduate course in soil mechanics.

Steen Krenk ... 360 pages - Publisher: Cambridge Univ. Press; (August, 2009) ... Language: English - ISBN-10: 0521830540 - ISBN-13: 978-0521830546

This book presents a theoretical treatment of nonlinear behavior of solids and structures in such a way that it is suitable for numerical computation, typically using the Finite Element Method. Starting out from elementary concepts, the author systematically uses the principle of virtual work, initially illustrated by truss structures, to give a self-contained and rigorous account of the basic methods. The author illustrates the combination of translations and rotations by finite deformation beam theories in absolute and co-rotation format, and describes the deformation of a three-dimensional continuum in material form. A concise introduction to finite elasticity is followed by an extension to elasto-plastic materials via internal variables and the maximum dissipation principle. Finally, the author presents numerical techniques for solution of the nonlinear global equations and summarizes recent results on momentum and energy conserving integration of time-dependent problems. Exercises, examples and algorithms are included throughout.

Isaac Elishakoff ... 752 pages - Publisher: CRC Press; (October, 2004) ... Language: English - ISBN-10: 0849328926 - ISBN-13: 978-0849328923

The engineering community generally accepts that there exists only a small set of closed-form solutions for simple cases of bars, beams, columns, and plates. Despite the advances in powerful computing and advanced numerical techniques, closed-form solutions remain important for engineering; these include uses for preliminary design, for evaluation of the accuracy of approximate and numerical solutions, and for evaluating the role played by various geometric and loading parameters. Eigenvalues of Inhomogeneous Structures: Unusual Closed-Form Solutions offers the first new treatment of closed-form solutions since the works of Leonhard Euler over two centuries ago. It presents simple solutions for vibrating bars, beams, and plates, as well as solutions that can be used to verify finite element solutions. The closed solutions in this book not only have applications that allow for the design of tailored structures, but also transcend mechanical engineering to generalize into other fields of engineering. Also included are polynomial solutions, non-polynomial solutions, and discussions on axial variability of stiffness that offer the possibility of incorporating axial grading into functionally graded materials. This single-package treatment of inhomogeneous structures presents the tools for optimization in many applications. Mechanical, aerospace, civil, and marine engineers will find this to be the most comprehensive book on the subject. In addition, senior undergraduate and graduate students and professors will find this to be a good supplement to other structural design texts, as it can be easily incorporated into the classroom.

M. Bill Wong ... 256 pages - Publisher: Butterworth-Heinemann; (September, 2008) ... Language: English - ISBN-10: 0750682981 - ISBN-13: 978-0750682985

 The book provides an introduction to the use of linear programming techniques for plastic analysis. This powerful and advanced method for plastic analysis is important in an automated computational environment, in particular for non-linear structural analysis. A detailed comparison between the design codes for the United States and Australia and the emerging European Eurocodes enables practising engineers to understand the issues involved in plastic design procedures and the limitations imposed by this design method. It covers latest research in plastic analysis and analytical tools + Introduces new successive approximation method for calculating collapse loads + Programming guide for using spreadsheet tools for plastic analysis. The plastic analysis method has been used extensively by engineers for designing steel structures. Simpler structures can be analyzed using the basic virtual work formulation, but more complex frames are evaluated with specialist computer software. This new book sets out a method for carrying out plastic analysis of complex structures without the need for specialist tools.
