A unified approach to the modeling and analysis of geometrically nonlinear structures

Nonlinear modeling and analysis of structures is a complex but important step in the design and optimization of modern structural systems. Bridging the gap between the practicing engineer and the applied mathematician, Linear and Nonlinear Structural Mechanics:

  • Presents mathematically consistent and systematic derivations of comprehensive structural theories
  • Details the basic principles of linear and nonlinear structural mechanics
  • Shows how to perform nonlinear structural analysis
  • Points out important nonlinear structural dynamic behaviors
  • Provides ready-to-use governing equations and boundary conditions, ranging from simple linear to complex nonlinear ones, for strings, cables, beams, plates, and shells

Designed to be used as a professional reference for structural engineers as well as a graduate-level textbook, this book provides a unique, unified approach that the reader can readily extend to formulate and analyze different or more complex structures.
