📙 Buckling and Postbuckling Structures: Experimental, Analytical and Numerical Studies by B. G. Falzon, B. G. Falzon, Aliabadi. M. H. — free pdf


This book provides an in-depth treatment of the study of the stability of engineering structures. Contributions from internationally recognized leaders in the field ensure a wide coverage of engineering disciplines in which structural stability is of importance, in particular the analytical and numerical modelling of structural stability applied to aeronautical, civil, marine and offshore structures. The results from a number of comprehensive experimental test programs are also presented, thus enhancing our understanding of stability phenomena as well as validating the analytical and computational solution schemes presented. A variety of structural materials are investigated with special emphasis on carbon-fibre composites, which are being increasingly utilized in weight-critical structures. Instabilities at the meso- and micro-scales are also discussed. This book will be particularly relevant to professional engineers, graduate students and researchers interested in structural stability.

Contents: Experimental Studies of Stiffened Composite Panels under Axial Compression, Torsion and Combined Loading (H Abramovich); Buckling and Postbuckling Tests on Stiffened Composite Panels and Shells (C Bisagni); Mode-Jumping in Postbuckling Stiffened Composite Panels (B G Falzon); The Development of Shell Buckling Design Criteria Based on Initial Imperfection Signatures (M W Hilburger); Stability Design of Stiffened Composite Panels Simulation and Experimental Validation (A Kling); Anisotropic Elastic Tailoring in Laminated Composite Plates and Shells (P M Weaver); Optimization of Stiffened Panels using Finite Strip Models (R Butler & W Liu); Stability of Tubes and Pipelines (H A Rasheed & S A Karamanos); Imperfection-Sensitive Buckling and Postbuckling of Spherical Shell Caps (S Yamada & M Uchiyama); Nonlinear Buckling in Sandwich Struts: Mode Interaction and Localization (M A Wadee); The Boundary Element Method for Buckling and Postbuckling Analysis of Plates and Shells (M H Aliabadi & P M Baiz); Progressive Failure in Compressively Loaded Composite Laminated Panels: Analytical, Experimental and Numerical Studies (S Basu et al.); Micro- and Meso-Instabilities in Structured Materials and Sandwich Structures (T Daxner et al.).
