Description

Mechanical Stability Models, Elastic Buckling of Columns, Buckling of Frames, The Energy Criterion and Energy-Based Models, Columns on Elastic Foundations, Buckling of Shafts, Buckling of Rings and Arches, Flexural-Torsional Buckling of Thin-Walled Beam Columns, Lateral-Torsional Buckling of Deep Beams, Nonconservative Systems and Dynamic Buckling, Work and Energy Related Principles and Theorems.

Key Features

  • An understandable introduction to the theory of structural stability, useful for a wide variety of engineering disciplines, including mechanical, civil and aerospace engineering
  • Covers both static and dynamic loads, for both conservative and nonconservative systems
  • Emphasizes elastic behavior under loads, including vertical buckling, torsional buckling and nonlinear affects of structural system buckling and stability
  • Case examples to illustrate real-world applications of Stability Theory

Readership

Upper Undergraduate and First-year Graduate students in Mechanical, Civil, and Aerospace Engineering Students in Materials Engineering, Solid Mechanics, Engineering Mechanics
