Nonlinear Beam and Cable Mechanics in Engineering Applications - (Hardcover)
About this item
Nonlinear models of elastic and visco-elastic one-dimensionalcontinuous structures (beams and cables) are formulated by theauthors of this title. Several models of increasing complexity arepresented: straight/curved, planar/non-planar,extensible/inextensible, shearable/unshearable,warping-unsensitive/sensitive, prestressed/unprestressed beams,both in statics and dynamics. Typical engineering problems aresolved via perturbation and/or numerical approaches, such asbifurcation and stability under potential and/or tangential loads,parametric excitation, nonlinear dynamics and aeroelasticity.
