Shear deformable beams and plates : relationships with classical solutions by C. M Wang( )

17 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most books on the theory and analysis of beams and plates deal with the classical (Euler-Bernoulli/Kirchoff) theories but few include shear deformation theories in detail. The classical beam/plate theory is not adequate in providing accurate bending, buckling, and vibration results when the thickness-to-length ratio of the beam/plate is relatively large. This is because the effect of transverse shear strains, neglected in the classical theory, becomes significant in deep beams and thick plates. This book illustrates how shear deformation theories provide accurate solutions compared to the classical theory. Equations governing shear deformation theories are typically more complicated than those of the classical theory. Hence it is desirable to have exact relationships between solutions of the classical theory and shear deformation theories so that whenever classical theory solutions are available, the corresponding solutions of shear deformation theories can be readily obtained. Such relationships not only furnish benchmark solutions of shear deformation theories but also provide insight into the significance of shear deformation on the response. The relationships for beams and plates have been developed by many authors over the last several years. The goal of this monograph is to bring together these relationships for beams and plates in a single volume. The book is divided into two parts. Following the introduction, Part 1 consists of Chapters 2 to 5 dealing with beams, and Part 2 consists of Chapters 6 to 13 covering plates. Problems are included at the end of each chapter to use, extend, and develop new relationships

An introduction to nonlinear finite element analysis by J. N Reddy( )

26 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents the theory and computer implementation of the finite element method as applied to nonlinear problems of heat transfer and similar field problems, fluid mechanics - flows of incompressible fluids - and solid mechanics - elasticity, beams, plates and shells. Both geometric as well as material nonlinearities are considered, and static and transient (i.e. time dependent) responses are studied. Detailed theoretical formulations and computer implementation steps, as well as numerical examples for the user to verify and validate self-created computer programs, give the reader a clear understanding of the concepts of nonlinear finite element analyses and allow greater confidence in the formulation and computer implementation of nonlinear equations across many fields of science and engineering. At the same time, the book serves as a prelude to more advanced books on the subject. It will be a useful textbook for graduate students of engineering - in particular, aerospace, civil and mechanical - and applied mathematics, but also a good reference for engineers and scientists working in industry, especially those in the aerospace and automobile industries."--Jacket
Variational methods in theoretical mechanics by J. Tinsley Oden( Book )

35 editions published between 1976 and 1998 in 4 languages and held by 684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a textbook written for use in a graduate-level course for students of mechanics and engineering science. It is designed to cover the essential features of modern variational methods and to demonstrate how a number of basic mathematical concepts can be used to produce a unified theory of variational mechanics. As prerequisite to using this text, we assume that the student is equipped with an introductory course in functional analysis at a level roughly equal to that covered, for example, in Kolmogorov and Fomin (Functional Analysis, Vol. I, Graylock, Rochester, 1957) and possibly a graduate-level course in continuum mechanics. Numerous references to supplementary material are listed throughout the book. We are indebted to Professor Jim Douglas of the University of Chicago, who read an earlier version of the manuscript and whose detailed suggestions were extremely helpful in preparing the final draft. We also gratefully acknowedge that much of our own research work on va ri at i ona 1 theory was supported by the U.S. Ai r Force Offi ce of Scientific Research. We are indebted to Mr. Ming-Goei Sheu for help in proofreading. Finally, we wish to express thanks to Mrs. Marilyn Gude for her excellent and painstaking job of typing the manuscript. This revised edition contains only minor revisions of the first. Some misprints and errors have been corrected, and some sections were deleted, which were felt to be out of date

Design of Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) Actuators by Ashwin Rao( )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This short monograph presents an analysis and design methodology for shape memory alloy (SMA) components such as wires, beams, and springs for different applications. The solid-solid, diffusionless phase transformations in thermally responsive SMA allows them to demonstrate unique characteristics like superelasticity and shape memory effects. The combined sensing and actuating capabilities of such materials allows them to provide a system level response by combining multiple functions in a single material system. In SMA, the combined mechanical and thermal loading effects influence the functionality of such materials. The aim of this book is to make the analysis of these materials accessible to designers by developing a "strength of materials" approach to the analysis and design of such SMA components inspired from their various applications with a review of various factors influencing the design process for such materials
Energy principles and variational methods in applied mechanics by J. N Reddy( Book )

18 editions published between 2002 and 2017 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A systematic presentation of energy principles and variational methods The increasing use of numerical and computational methods in engineering and applied sciences has shed new light on the importance of energy principles and variational methods. Energy Principles and Variational Methods in Applied Mechanics provides a systematic and practical introduction to the use of energy principles, traditional variational methods, and the finite element method to the solution of engineering problems involving bars, beams, torsion, plane elasticity, and plates. Beginning with a review of the basic equations of mechanics and the concepts of work, energy, and topics from variational calculus, this book presents the virtual work and energy principles, energy methods of solid and structural mechanics, Hamilton's principle for dynamical systems, and classical variational methods of approximation. A unified approach, more general than that found in most solid mechanics books, is used to introduce the finite element method. Also discussed are applications to beams and plates. Complete with more than 200 illustrations and tables, Energy Principles and Variational Methods in Applied Mechanics, Second Edition is a valuable book for students of aerospace, civil, mechanical, and applied mechanics; and engineers in design and analysis groups in the aircraft, automobile, and civil engineering structures, as well as shipbuilding industries."--Publisher's website
Finite element analysis of composite laminates by O. O Ochoa( Book )

14 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Composite materials are increasingly used in aerospace, underwater, and automotive structures. To take advantage of the full potential of composite materials, structural analysts and designers must have accurate mathematical models and design methods at their disposal. The objective of this monograph is to present the laminated plate theories and their finite element models to study the deformation, strength and failure of composite structures. Emphasis is placed on engineering aspects, such as the analytical descriptions, effective analysis tools, modeling of physical features, and evaluation of approaches used to formulate and predict the response of composite structures. The first chapter presents an overview of the text. Chapter 2 is devoted to the introduction of the definitions and terminology used in composite materials and structures. Anisotropic constitutive relations and Iaminate plate theories are also reviewed. Finite element models of laminated composite plates are presented in Chapter 3. Numerical evaluation of element coefficient matrices, post-computation of strains and stresses, and sample examples of laminated plates in bending and vibration are discussed. Chapter 4 introduces damage and failure criteria in composite laminates. Finally, Chapter 5 is dedicated to case studies involving various aspects and types of composite structures. Joints, cutouts, woven composites, environmental effects, postbuckling response and failure of composite laminates are discussed by considering specific examples

Principles of continuum mechanics : a study of conservation principles with applications by J. N Reddy( Book )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2018 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Continuum mechanics deals with the stress, deformation, and mechanical behaviour of matter as a continuum rather than a collection of discrete particles. The subject is interdisciplinary in nature, and has gained increased attention in recent times primarily because of a need to understand a variety of phenomena at different spatial scales. The second edition of Principles of Continuum Mechanics provides a concise yet rigorous treatment of the subject of continuum mechanics and elasticity at the senior undergraduate and first-year graduate levels. It prepares engineer-scientists for advanced courses in traditional as well as emerging fields such as biotechnology, nanotechnology, energy systems, and computational mechanics. The large number of examples and exercise problems contained in the book systematically advance the understanding of vector and tensor analysis, basic kinematics, balance laws, field equations, constitutive equations, and applications."--Provided by publisher
