The ability of a structural assembly to carry loads and forces determines how stable it will be over time. Viewing structural assemblages as comprising columns, beams, arches, rings, and plates, this book will introduce the student to both a classical and advanced understanding of the mechanical behavior of such structural systems under load and how modeling the resulting strains can predict the overall future performance―the stability―of that structure. While covering traditional beam theory, the book is more focused on elastica theory in keeping with modern approaches. This text will be an expanded and updated version a similar, previously published book, but with pedagogical improvements and updated analytical methods.

This engineering textbook will provide a focused treatment on the study of how structures behave and perform when under stress loading, including plastic deformation and buckling. All advanced engineering students studying engineering mechanics, structural analysis and design, fatigue and failure, and other related subjects need to have this knowledge, and this book will provide it in a thorough and coherent fashion. Written by two of the world’s leading engineering professors in this subject area, the pedagogy has been classroom-tested over many years and should find a receptive readership among both students and instructors.

  • An understandable introduction to the theory of structural stability, useful for a wide variety of engineering disciplines, including mechanical, civil and aerospace engineering
  • Covers both static and dynamic loads, for both conservative and nonconservative systems
  • Emphasizes elastic behavior under loads, including vertical buckling, torsional buckling and nonlinear affects of structural system buckling and stability
  • Case examples to illustrate real-world applications of Stability Theory

KEY FEATURES
· An understandable introduction to the theory of structural stability, useful for a wide variety of engineering disciplines, including mechanical, civil and aerospace engineering
· Emphasizes elastic behavior under loads, including vertical buckling, torsion buckling and nonlinear affects of structural system buckling and stability
· Case examples to illustrate real-world applications of Stability Theory

Fundamentals of Structural Stability, authored by two of the world’s leading mechanical engineering researchers and professors, focuses on structural stability by introducing the student to both a classical and an advanced understanding of the mechanical behavior of systems under load and how modeling the resulting strains can predict the overall future performance―the stability―of a particular structural system. The textbook will provide a focused study of how structures behave and perform when under stress loading, including plastic deformation and buckling. The authors cover the traditional beam theory, as well as modern approaches like elastic theory.

All advanced engineering students studying solid mechanics, structural analysis and design, fatigue and failure, and other related subjects need grounding in the stability of structural systems, and this book will provide that knowledge in a thorough and understandable fashion. Designed with a flexibility for either a one-semester or two-semester course sequence, this text offers a classroom-tested pedagogy, including abundant worked-out examples and insightful problems for further study. The authors have constructed a text that both students and teachers should find to be illuminating, essential reading.

Contents: Mechanical Stability Models, Elastic Buckling of Columns, Buckling of Frames, The Energy Criterion and Energy-Based Models, Columns on Elastic Foundations, Buckling of Shafts, Buckling of Rings and Arches, Flexural-Torsion Buckling of Thin-Walled Beam Columns, Lateral-Torsion Buckling of Deep Beams, Non-conservative Systems and Dynamic Buckling, Work and Energy Related Principles and Theorems.
