Nonlinear Structural Dynamics Using FE Methods emphasizes fundamental mechanics principles and outlines a modern approach to understanding structural dynamics. The book will be useful to practicing engineers, giving them a richer understanding of the use of their trade and thus accelerating learning on new problems. Independent workers will find access to advanced topics presented in an accessible manner. The book successfully tackles the challenge of how to present the fundamentals of structural dynamics and infuse it with finite element (FE) methods. First, the author establishes and develops mechanics principles that are basic enough to form the foundations of FE methods. Second, the book presents specific computer procedures to implement FE methods so that general problems can be “solved” – that is, responses can be produced given the loads, initial conditions, and so on. Finally, the book introduces methods of analyses to leverage and expand the FE solutions.Read more
- Emphasizes fundamental mechanics principles in a useful form, and presents a thoroughly modern approach to learning and understanding structural dynamics
- Each major topic is supplemented with a large number of solved problems, ranging from direct applications to deeper explorations
- The accompanying software is versatile enough to solve a wide range of problems
- The source code is also provided which can be treated as a toolbox for extending the material
