Download and read online Spectral Element Method in Structural Dynamics in PDF and EPUB Spectral Element Method in Structural Dynamics is a concise and timely introduction to the spectral element method (SEM) as a means of solving problems in structural dynamics, wave propagations, and other related fields. The book consists of three key sections. In the first part, background knowledge is set up for the readers by reviewing previous work in the area and by providing the fundamentals for the spectral analysis of signals. In the second part, the theory of spectral element method is provided, focusing on how to formulate spectral element models and how to conduct spectral element analysis to obtain the dynamic responses in both frequency- and time-domains. In the last part, the applications of SEM to various structural dynamics problems are introduced, including beams, plates, pipelines, axially moving structures, rotor systems, multi-layered structures, smart structures, composite laminated structures, periodic lattice structures, blood flow, structural boundaries, joints, structural damage, and impact forces identifications, as well as the SEM-FEM hybrid method. Presents all aspects of SEM in one volume, both theory and applications Helps students and professionals master associated theories, modeling processes, and analysis methods Demonstrates where and how to apply SEM in practice Introduces real-world examples across a variety of structures Shows how models can be used to evaluate the accuracy of other solution methods Cross-checks against solutions obtained by conventional FEM and other solution methods Comes with downloadable code examples for independent practice Spectral Element Method in Structural Dynamics can be used by graduate students of aeronautical, civil, naval architectures, mechanical, structural and biomechanical engineering. Researchers in universities, technical institutes, and industries will also find the book to be a helpful reference highlighting SEM applications to various engineering problems in areas of structural dynamics, wave propagations, and other related subjects. The book can also be used by students, professors, and researchers who want to learn more efficient and more accurate computational methods useful for their research topics from all areas of engineering, science and mathematics, including the areas of computational mechanics and numerical methods.

Author: Martin Williams
Publisher: CRC Press

Download and read online Structural Dynamics in PDF and EPUB A short, accessible introduction to structural dynamics, this book covers linear analysis of single (SDOF) and multi-degree-of-freedom (MDOF) systems, under free vibration and in response to a variety of forcing functions. It touches on hand analysis of continuous systems to illustrate key principles and discusses methods of calculation of non-linear dynamic response. Lastly, it presents the key principles of random vibration analysis – this approach is crucial for wind engineering and is increasingly important for other load cases.

Publisher: CRC Press

Download and read online Dynamics of Structure and Foundation A Unified Approach in PDF and EPUB Designed to provide engineers with quick access to current and practical information on the dynamics of structure and foundation, this 2-volume reference work is intended for engineers involved with earthquake or dynamic analysis, or the design of machine foundations in the oil, gas, and energy sector. Whereas the first volume deals with the fundamentals, this volume is dedicated to applications in various civil engineering problems, related to dynamic soil-structure interaction, machine foundation and earthquake engineering. It presents innovative, easy-to-apply and practical solutions to various problems and difficulties a design engineer will encounter. It allows quick access to targeted information; it includes a wealth of case studies and also examines geotechnical considerations with regard to dynamic soil-structure interaction. This book is concentrated on three major application areas: dynamic soil-structure interaction (DSSI), rhe analysis and design of machine foundations, and on the analytical and design concepts for earthquake engineering. Vol. 1 (ISBN 9780415471459) focusses on the theory and fundamentals book.

Download and read online God and Globalization Volume 4 in PDF and EPUB This is the fourth volume in the series God and Globalization, sponsored by the Center of Theological Inquiry in Princeton, N.J. The 3 previous volumes were multi-authored. This volume is authored solely by Max Stackhouse, the general editor of the series, with a Foreword by the distinguished church historian Justo Gonzales. This final interpretive volume argues for a view of Christian theology that, in critical dialogue with other world religions and philosophies, is able to engage the new world situation, play a critical role in reforming the "powers" that are becoming more diverse and autonomous, and generate a social ethic for the 21st century.
