Uncertainty and Optimization in Structural Mechanics
Language: en
Pages: 144
Authors: Abdelkhalak El Hami, Bouchaib Radi
Categories: Technology & Engineering
Type: BOOK - Published: 2013-04-08 - Publisher: John Wiley & Sons

Optimization is generally a reduction operation of a definitequantity. This process naturally takes place in our environment andthrough our activities. For example, many natural systems evolve,in order to minimize their potential energy. Modeling thesephenomena then largely relies on our capacity to artificiallyreproduce these processes. In parallel, optimization problems havequickly emerged

Fluid-Structure Interactions and Uncertainties
Language: en
Pages: 240
Authors: Abdelkhalak El Hami, Bouchaib Radi
Categories: Science
Type: BOOK - Published: 2017-02-08 - Publisher: John Wiley & Sons

This book is dedicated to the general study of fluid structure interaction with consideration of uncertainties. The fluid-structure interaction is the study of the behavior of a solid in contact with a fluid, the response can be strongly affected by the action of the fluid. These phenomena are common and
Non-local Structural Mechanics

Pages: 372
Authors: Danilo Karlicic, Tony Murmu, Sondipon Adhikari, Michael McCarthy
Categories: Technology & Engineering
Type: BOOK - Published: 2016-01-26 - Publisher: John Wiley & Sons

Serving as a review on non-local mechanics, this book provides an introduction to non-local elasticity theory for static, dynamic and stability analysis in a wide range of nanostructures. The authors draw on their own research experience to present fundamental and complex theories that are relevant across a wide range of
Experimental Mechanics of Solids and Structures
Language: en
Pages: 176
Authors: Jérôme Molimard
Categories: Science
Type: BOOK - Published: 2016-06-07 - Publisher: John Wiley & Sons

From the characterization of materials to accelerated life testing, experimentation with solids and structures is present in all stages of the design of mechanical devices. Sometimes only an experimental model can bring the necessary elements for understanding, the physics under study just being too complex for an efficient numerical model.
