Nonlinear Dynamics of Structures Under Extreme Transient Loads

1st Edition


Adnan Ibrahimbegovic, Naida Ademović
May 30, 2019

The effect of combined extreme transient loadings on a structure is not well understood—whether the source is man-made, such as an explosion and fire, or natural, such as an earthquake or extreme wind loading. A critical assessment of current knowledge is timely (with Fukushima-like disasters or t...

Modern Engineered Bamboo Structures: Proceedings of the Third International Conference on Modern Bamboo Structures (ICBS 2018), June 25-27, 2018, Beijing, China

1st Edition

Y Xiao, Z Li, K.W. Liu
November 05, 2019

Fast-growing and local to some of the poorest communities in the tropics and subtropics, bamboo holds huge potential for climate change mitigation, innovative construction and job creation, but the material is rarely used for more than simple construction and household use. Modern Engineered...
