Mathematical Models of Beams and Cables, Hardback Book

Mathematical Models of Beams and Cables Hardback


Nonlinear models of elastic and visco-elastic onedimensional continuous structures (beams and cables) are formulated by the authors of this title.

Several models of increasing complexity are presented: straight/curved, planar/non-planar, extensible/inextensible, shearable/unshearable, warpingunsensitive/ sensitive, prestressed/unprestressed beams, both in statics and dynamics.

Typical engineering problems are solved via perturbation and/or numerical approaches, such as bifurcation and stability under potential and/or tangential loads, parametric excitation, nonlinear dynamics and aeroelasticity.

Contents 1. A One-Dimensional Beam Metamodel. 2. Straight Beams. 3. Curved Beams. 4. Internally Constrained Beams. 5. Flexible Cables. 6. Stiff Cables. 7. Locally-Deformable Thin-Walled Beams. 8. Distortion-Constrained Thin-Walled Beams.
