Modeling complex engineering structures.


Modeling complex engineering structures.

Ed. by Robert E. Melchers and Richard Hough.

Am. Society of Civil Engineers


359 pages




This work gives an overview of the latest developments in computational theory and techniques as currently applied in various fields of structural analysis in the US and around the world. A discussion is also included, at a practical level, of concepts of uncertainty in system representation and the implications for performance and safety. Material is accessible to readers with experience at the student or practitioner level in at least one area of structural analysis. The book's cross-disciplinary presentation is designed to stimulate cross-fertilization of modeling approaches, computational techniques, and ways of viewing satisfactory performance. Melchers teaches civil engineering at the University of Newcastle, Australia. Hough teaches multidisciplinary design at the University of New South Wales, Australia.
