Modern Experimental Stress Analysis Completing the Solution of Partially Specified Problems By James F. Doyle

Introduction This book is based on the assertion that, in modern stress analysis, constructing the model is constructing the solution—that the model is the solution. But all model representations of real structures must be incomplete; after all, we cannot be completely aware of every material property, every aspect of the loading, and every condition of the environment, for any particular structure. Therefore, as a corollary to the assertion, we posit that a very important role of modern experimental stress analysis is to aid in completing the construction of the model….

Precast Concrete Structures, Second Edition By Kim S Elliott

Preference: What makes precast concrete different from other forms of concrete construction? Whether concrete is precast, that is statically reinforced or pretension (prestressed), is not always apparent. It is only when we consider the role concrete will play in developing structural characteristics that its precast nature becomes significant. The most obvious definition of precast concrete is that it is concrete which has been prepared for casting, cast and cured in a location which is not its final destination. The distance traveled from the casting site may only be a few…

Global Structural Analysis of Buildings By Karoly A.Zalka

Introduction The global structural analysis of buildings can be carried out following two routes. First, sophisticated and complex computer packages based on the finite element method offer endless facilities and can handle even huge structures with a great number of elements. Second, analytical methods can also deal with whole structures leading to simple closed-form solutions, with the additional benefit of providing fast checking facilities for the computer-based methods. In applying physical and mathematical models which are based on the global behavior of building structures, a unified treatment of the stress,…
