High-performance Computing for Structural Mechanics and Earthquake/Tsunami Engineering (Hardcover)
about this item
Huge earthquake and tsunami have caused serious damages to important structures such as civil infrastructure, buildings, power plants and so on in worldwide. To quantitatively evaluate such damage processes and to design effective prevention and mitigation measures, latest high-performance computational mechanics technology using telascale to petascale computers provides powerful tools. The targeted phenomena in this book include seismic wave propagation in crust and soil, seismic response of infrastructure such as tunnel considering soil-structure interaction, seismic response of high-rise building, seismic response of nuclear power plant, tsunami run-up over a coastal town and tsunami inundation considering fluid-structure interaction. This book describes all necessary information for solving the phenomena ranging from fundamentals of high performance computing for finite element method, key algorithms of accurate dynamic structural analysis, fluid flow with free surface, fluid-structure interaction topractical applications with colorful simulation results. This book will give good insight to researchers and engineers working in the field of computational seismic / tsunami engineering.
