Advanced Structural Mechanics, Hardback Book


Building on the author's Structural Mechanics Fundamentals, this text presents a complete and uniform treatment of the more advanced topics in structural mechanics, ranging from beam frames to shell structures, from dynamics to buckling analysis, from plasticity to fracture mechanics, from long-span to high-rise civil structures.

Plane framesStatically indeterminate beam systems: Method of displacementsPlates and shellsFinite element methodDynamics of discrete systemsDynamics of continuous elastic systemsBuckling instabilityLong-span structuresHigh-rise structuresTheory of plasticityPlane stress and plane strain conditionsMechanics of fractureThis book serves as a text for graduate students in structural engineering, as well as a reference for practising engineers and researchers.
