About this book

Nonlinear Structural Mechanics: Theory, Dynamical Phenomena and Modeling offers a concise, coherent presentation of the theoretical framework of nonlinear mechanics, computational methods, applications, parametric investigations of nonlinear phenomena and their mechanical interpretation towards design. The theoretical and computational tools that enable the formulation, solution, and interpretation of nonlinear structures are presented in a systematic fashion so as to gradually attain an increasing level of complexity of structural behaviors, under the prevailing assumptions on the geometry of deformation, the constitutive aspects and the loading scenarios. Readers will find a unified treatment of the foundations of nonlinear structural mechanics and dynamics, in addition to its modern computational aspects and the prominent nonlinear structural phenomena, tackling both the mathematical and applied sciences.

Nonlinear Structural Mechanics: Theory, Dynamical Phenomena and Modeling is an excellent reference for engineers of various disciplines, students, and researchers involved with nonlinear dynamics and structural mechanics.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book presents a broad and intensive look at modern nonlinear structural mechanics, including: theoretical background, computational methods, and applications. … I would recommend this book to anyone interested in nonlinear structures and dynamics … . It represents a comprehensive reference for both its breadth of cutting edge topics and its exhaustive list of references. The care taken with the technical complexity of the illustrative models in each chapter is one of the key characteristics of this book.” (Justin Thomas Webster, Mathematical Reviews, March, 2014)

“The book is an impressive treatise on non-linear structural mechanics and the author needs to be congratulated for presenting important concepts of nonlinear dynamics and mechanics with elegance and simplicity. … the book by Lacarbonara is a comprehensive tour de force in nonlinear structural mechanics. … The book can lend itself well to several different versions of a graduate course on nonlinear mechanics. In addition, the references included make this book an excellent and unique reference source.” (B. Balachandran, Meccanica, Vol. 48, 2013)
