About this book

This book introduces the challenges inherent in jointed structures and guides researchers to the still-open, pressing challenges that need to be solved to advance this critical field. The authors cover multiple facets of interfacial mechanics that pertain to jointed structures: tribological modeling and measurements of the interface surfaces, constitutive modeling of joints, numerical reduction techniques for structures with joints, and uncertainty quantification and propagation for these structures. Thus, the key subspecialties addressed are model reduction for nonlinear systems, uncertainty quantification, constitutive modeling of joints, and measurements of interfacial mechanics properties (including tribology). The diverse contributions to this volume fill a much needed void in the literature and present to a new generation of joints researchers the potential challenges that they can engage in in order to advance the state of the art.
