Download ebook Analysis of Skeletal Structural Systems in the Elastic and Elastic-plastic Range – Adam Borkowski
The purpose of this book is to provide a smooth transition from linear elasticity through the nonlinear behaviour induced by unilateral constraints to full-scale plasticity. It presents applications of Mathematical Programming to nonlinear static analysis of skeletal structures (trusses, frames, grillages etc.). It is demonstrated that under the assumption of small displacements, a broad class […]
