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...

Structural Analysis of Multi-Storey Buildings

2nd Edition

Karoly A. Zalka
February 28, 2020

The structural analysis of multi-storey buildings can be carried out using discrete (computer-based) models or creating continuum models that lead to much simpler albeit normally approximate results. The book relies on the second approach and presents the theoretical background and the governing...
