Описание: Geotechnical works involve complex geo-engineering issues, which are reviewed in this volume presenting the very latest research and practice in
computational mechanics in geotechnical engineering. "Application of Computational Mechanics in Geotechn
cal Engineering V" contains contributions on soil and rock excavations, underground structures and ground reinforcement; and on the construction of dams, embankments and rail
track. Other papers consider the geomechanics of oil exploration and rock mechanics in mining; while environmental contributions include groundwater management.
range of methodologies are discussed: inversed methodologies, artificial intelligence and computational systems, which highlight future trends in the area of computational mechanics
applied to geotechnical problems. The book will be of interest to researchers, academics, students, software developers, and practical engineers across the field of geotechnics.
Описание: Details computational aspects of stochastic analysis within the field of structural mechanics. This book is suitable for graduate students and for structural analysts who wish to explore the potential benefits of stochastic analysis.
Описание: This book presents a comprehensive coverage of the two interrelated and interdisciplinary fields of seismic microzonation and earthquake geotechnical engineering. The introduction and the first chapter by two prominent researchers in the field of earthquake geotechnical engineering are setting the stage for the main theme of the book. The second chapter gives a general overview of the methods for estimating earthquake impact in large urban areas and the importance of the scale in zonation studies. The six following chapters are dealing with the main topics of strong ground motion, site characterization, site effects, liquefaction, and seismic microzonation. The last three chapters are concerned with geotechnical earthquake engineering, with special emphasis on solid waste landfills and lining systems, and earthquake resistant design of shallow and deep foundation subjected to earthquakes.CD-ROM included containing full-color versions of figures which are printed in black-and-white in the book itself.
Описание: This book collects invited lectures presented at the AMAS & ECCOMAS Workshop/Thematic Conference SMARTвЂ™03 on Smart Materials and Structures. The conference was held in Jadwisin, Poland near Warsaw, 2-5 September 2003. It was organized by the Advanced Materials and Structures (AMAS) Centre of Excellence at the Institute of Fundamental Technological Research (IFTR) in Warsaw and ECCOMAS вЂ“ the European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences and SMART-TECH Centre at IFTR. The goal of the workshop was to bring together and consolidate the community of Smart Materials and Structures in Europe. The workshop program was grouped into the topics Structural Control, Vibration Control and Dynamics, Damage Identification, and Smart Materials.

Описание: Earthquake engineering is becoming more interdisciplinary, requiring expertise from engineering seismologists, geotechnical and structural engineers, architects, construction firms, and experts in risk management. At the same time, earthquake engineering research and practice has advanced a tremendous amount in the past few years, and many of these advancements are not reflected in the current textbooks. The need for training and education worldwide has expanded and Introduction to Earthquake Engineering will fulfill all requirements of the market. The proposed textbook will bring to the students new and advanced concepts in a simple and modern fashion. As well as providing a consistent approach to the subject matter across chapters, the book also focuses on underlying principles and concepts essential to earthquake engineering methodologies under development today. Discussions include: characterization of seismic input, evaluation of response, assessment of performance, and retrofit and rehabilitation. The book offers problems to be used as homework assignment together with some solved examples. The accompanying CD/website (TBC) will contain some simple programs for strong-motion and spectra as well as structural response analysis. Readers will find that this book is generic and focuses on the fundamental problems rather than regional coverage.
Описание: This book provides an insight in advanced methods and concepts for structural analysis and design against seismic loading. The book consists of 25 chapters dealing with a wide range of timely issues in contemporary Earthquake Engineering. In brief, the topics covered are: collapse assessment, record selection, effect of soil conditions, problems in seismic design, protection of monuments, earth dam structures and liquid containers, numerical methods, lifetime assessment, post-earthquake measures.A common ground of understanding is provided between the communities of Earth Sciences and Computational Mechanics towards mitigating seismic risk. The topic is of great social and scientific interest, due to the large number of scientists and practicing engineers currently working in the field and due to the great social and economic consequences of earthquakes.
