This second edition of the book, Nonlinear Random Vibration: Analytical Techniques and Applications, expands on the original edition with additional detailed steps in various places in the text. It is a first systematic presentation on the subject. Its features include:• a concise treatment of...

Dynamics of Tethered Space Systems

Dynamics of Tethered Space Systems

Hans Troger, A.P. Alpatov, V.V. Beletsky, V.I. Dranovskii, V.S. Khoroshilov, A.V. Pirozhenko, A.E. Zakrzhevskii
June 14, 2017

During many of the earliest American and Russian space missions, experiments were performed using cables to connect people and objects to spacecraft in orbit. These attempts generated considerable information about the formation of tethered systems and basic problems with tether orientation and...

Bringing together some of the most recognized and influential researchers and scientists in various space-related disciplines, Lunar Settlements addresses the many issues that surround the permanent human return to the Moon. Numerous international contributors offer their insights into how certain...

Nonlinear Random Vibration: Analytical Techniques and Applications

Nonlinear Random Vibration: Analytical Techniques and Applications

Cho W.S. To
April 21, 2014

This is a systematic presentation of several classes of analytical techniques in non-linear random vibration. The book also includes a concise treatment of Markovian and non-Markovian solutions of non-linear differential equations....

The Finite Element Method for Mechanics of Solids with ANSYS Applications

The Finite Element Method for Mechanics of Solids with ANSYS Applications

Ellis H. Dill
August 25, 2011

While the finite element method (FEM) has become the standard technique used to solve static and dynamic problems associated with structures and machines, ANSYS software has developed into the engineer’s software of choice to model and numerically solve those problems. An invaluable tool to help...

Handbook of Space Engineering, Archaeology, and Heritage

Handbook of Space Engineering, Archaeology, and Heritage

Ann Darrin, Beth L. O'Leary
June 26, 2009

Some might think that the 27 thousand tons of material launched by earthlings into outer space is nothing more than floating piles of debris. However, when looking at these artifacts through the eyes of historians and anthropologists, instead of celestial pollution, they are seen as links to human...

Spatial Variation of Seismic Ground Motions: Modeling and Engineering Applications

Spatial Variation of Seismic Ground Motions: Modeling and Engineering Applications

Aspasia Zerva
April 28, 2009

The spatial variation of seismic ground motions denotes the differences in the seismic time histories at various locations on the ground surface. This text focuses on the spatial variability of the motions that is caused by the propagation of the waveforms from the earthquake source through the...

Fundamentals of Rail Vehicle Dynamics

Fundamentals of Rail Vehicle Dynamics

Alan Wickens
January 01, 2003

Fundamentals of Rail Vehicle Dynamics lays a foundation for the design of rail vehicles based on the mechanics of wheel-rail interaction as described by the equations of motion. The author advances simple models to elucidate particular challenges and demonstrate innovative systems while using...

David Cebon
January 01, 2000

This handbook dicussess tyre-road contact forces generated by heavy vehicles covering their influence on road surface and bridge response and damage, as well as ways of regulating and improving vehicles so as to minimize road damage.;The main incentive for understanding vehicle-road interaction is...

Nonlinear Dynamics of Compliant Offshore Structures

Nonlinear Dynamics of Compliant Offshore Structures

Patrick Bar-Avi, Haym Benaroya
January 01, 1997

This monograph provides a general background to the modelling of a special class of offshore structures known as compliant structures. External forcing is resisted by buoyancy and tension forces which increase when the structure is slightly offset from its equilibrium. The technical development...
