Springer; 2nd edition
Structural Dynamics with Applications in Earthquake and Wind Engineering; 2nd Edition; (PDF) offers a comprehensive introduction to the theory of structural dynamics; highlighting practical issues and showing applications with a large number of worked-out examples. In the spirit of “learning by doing;” it motivates readers to apply immediately these methods through the software provided; allowing them to become familiar with the broad field of structural dynamics in the process.
The ebook is primarily focused on practical applications. Earthquake resistant design is imparted holistically; discussing both the underlying geophysical concepts and the current engineering design methods and illustrated by fully worked out examples based on the newest structural codes. The spectral characteristics of turbulent wind processes and the main analysis methods in the field of structural oscillations due to wind gusts and vortex shedding are also discussed and applications presented by realistic examples of slender chimney structures.
The user‐friendly software utilized is downloadable (not included in this sale) and can be readily used by readers to tackle their own problems.
NOTE: The product only includes the ebook; Structural Dynamics with Applications in Earthquake and Wind Engineering; 2nd Edition in PDF. No access codes are included.
