Some brief overview of book

Explicitly reintroducing the idea of modeling to the analysis of structures, Analytical Estimates of Structural Behavior presents an integrated approach to modeling and estimating the behavior of structures. With the increasing reliance on computer-based approaches in structural analysis, it is becoming even more important for structural engineers to recognize that they are dealing with models of structures, not with the actual structures. As tempting as it is to run innumerable simulations, closed-form estimates can be effectively used to guide and check numerical results, and to confirm physical insights and intuitions.

Spend Less Time Generating Numbers, and More Time Understanding What They Mean This book encourages readers to think about structures and their models in a way that is rooted in classic elementary elasticity-depending less on advanced mathematical techniques and more on the dimensions and magnitudes of the underlying physics. The authors stretch the mold, emphasizing and more explicitly describing the modeling process. The focus is on learning which calculations to perform and how to validate and interpret the results-skills that will be increasingly useful for professional engineers.

Chapters cover Key principles and techniques of mathematical modeling, including dimensional analysis, scaling, linearity, and balance and conservation laws Basic structural models How to develop and express physical intuition How to track the behavior of arches under lateral load Two methods of analyzing coupled discrete systems-Castiglianos theorems and Rayleighs quotient-to lay a foundation for their application to continuous systems How to derive simple, accurate estimates of the transverse displacements of structures modeled in terms of coupled Timoshenko beams How to analyze the dimensional behavior and calculate numerical values of fundamental frequencies of structures modeled in terms of Euler-Bernoulli, Timoshenko, and coupled-beam systems Taking a unique approach, Analytical Estimates of Structural Behavior is suitable for advanced undergraduates, as well as graduate students and practitioners, who want to spend less time and effort generating numbers, and more time understanding what those numbers mean.

Small FAQ about download

Book files are stored on servers owned by you?
No. We do not store files, because it is prohibited. Our site uses the API of third-party sites that store files. That is, we are doing the same thing as Google, only within the framework of one subject. Third-party sites are multimedia services that allow you to read and download e-books. By subscribing, you get access to a huge library of multimedia content, which is updated daily. Services are fully optimized for all platforms - iOS, Android and PC.
How time will the file be downloaded?
Very fast. We regularly check (this is a fully automatic process) the availability of servers, the links to which we offer you. If the server does not provide a quick download, then we remove it from the list.
Which format of file is better to download?
Modern smartphones and computers can read files of any format. But the most compatible is the PDF format. For example, the analytical-estimates-structural-behavior.pdf can be read in Mozilla Firefox or Chrome browser without any additions.
