Synopsis: Traditionally, engineers look to established safety factors to build sound structures, but the process is inefficient and often yields less than the desired results. This reference presents a different approach, allowing structural engineers to overcome the unpredictability of traditional modeling systems by developing sophisticated equation sets to solve specific structural problems.
From the Back Cover: POWERFUL NEW MATHEMATICAL TOOLS FOR STRUCTURAL DYNAMICS
Presenting powerful new methods for analyzing uncertainties in the performance of designed systems, Probabilistic Structural Dynamics offers unparalleled tools for predicting the performance of new designs with new materials. In this text, pioneering engineers Y.K. Lin and G.Q. Cai demonstrate innovative mathematical techniques and explain how they can both improve safety and drive new efficiencies in contemporary structures. Employing spectral analysis, Markov processes, and other stochastic tools, Lin and Cai show you step-by-step how to:
* Perform dynamic analyses of linear and nonlinear systems
* Apply evolutionary spectral analysis
* Approximate solutions for multidimensional nonlinear systems
* Use insights from first-excursion failures
* Find answers for disordered structures
* Employ stochastics to achieve safer, more efficient design
