Flexural-Torsional Buckling of Structures provides an up-to-date, comprehensive treatment of flexural-torsional buckling and demonstrates how to design against this mode of failure. The author first explains the fundamentals of this type of buckling behavior and then summarizes results that will be of use to designers and researchers in either equation or graphical form. This approach makes the book an ideal text/reference for students in structural engineering as well as for practicing civil engineers, structural engineers, and constructional steel researchers and designers. The book begins by introducing the modern development of the theory of flexural-torsional buckling through discussions on the general concepts of equilibrium, total potential, virtual work, and buckling. It then continues with in-depth coverage of hand methods for solving buckling problems, the analysis of flexural-torsional buckling using the finite element method, and the buckling of different types of structural elements and frames composed of various elastic materials. Other topics addressed include the design and inelastic buckling of steel members. The book's final chapter considers a collection of special topics.

This book sets forth methods of designing and analyzing metal engineering structures of steel and aluminum. The first two chapters are devoted to the fundamentals of designing and the theory of analyzing metal structures and structural members with account of the material working not only in the elastic, but also in the elastoplastic stage. Chapters 3-5 describe various structural shapes and methods of joining together structural elements, the actual behavior of the joints and their investigation, as well as certain industrial requirements which the design of structures must meet. In chapters 6-8 the reader will find a detailed consideration of the principal elements of metal structures such as beams, girders, trusses, and columns, as well as information on crane girders and eccentrically loaded columns.The design of metal structures consisting of separate structural elements is the subject matter of Chapters 9 and 10.

The current trend of building more streamlined structures has made stability analysis a subject of extreme importance. It is mostly a safety issue because Stability loss could result in an unimaginable catastrophe. Written by two authors with a combined 80 years of professional and academic experience, the objective of Stability of Structures: Principles and Applications is to provide engineers and architects with a firm grasp of the fundamentals and principles that are essential to performing effective stability analysts. Concise and readable, this guide presents stability analysis within the context of elementary nonlinear flexural analysis, providing a strong foundation for incorporating theory into everyday practice. The first chapter introduces the buckling of columns. It begins with the linear elastic theory and proceeds to include the effects of large deformations and inelastic behavior. In Chapter 2 various approximate methods are illustrated along with the fundamentals of energy methods. The chapter concludes by introducing several special topics, some advanced, that are useful in understanding the physical resistance mechanisms and consistent and rigorous mathematical analysis. Chapters 3 and 4 cover buckling of beam-columns. Chapter 5 presents torsion in structures in some detail, which is one of the least well understood subjects in the entire spectrum of structural mechanics. Strictly speaking, torsion itself does not belong to a topic in structural stability, but needs to be covered to some extent for a better understanding of buckling accompanied with torsional behavior. Chapters 6 and 7 consider stability of framed structures in conjunction with torsional behavior of structures. Chapters 8 to 10 consider buckling of plate elements, cylindrical shells, and general shells. Although the book is primarily devoted to analysis, rudimentary design aspects are discussed. Balanced presentation for both theory and practice Well-blended contents covering elementary to advanced topics Detailed presentation of the development

Structural Stability: Theory and Implementation is a practical work that provides engineers and students in structural engineering or structured mechanics with the background needed to make the transition from fundamental theory to practical design rules and computer implementation. Beginning with the basic principles of structural stability and basic governing equations,Structural Stability is a concise and comprehensive introduction that applies the principles and theory of structural stability (which are the basis for structural steel design) to the solution of practical building frame design problems. Special features include: modern theories of structural stability of members and frames, and a discussion of how these theories may be utilized to provide design rules and calculation techniques for design important governing equations and the classical solutions used in design processes examples of analytical and numerical methods selected as the most useful and practically applicable methods available detailed information on the stability design rules of the 1986 AISC/LRFD Specifications for the design, fabrication, and erection of structural steel for buildings dual units (SI and English) with most of the material presented in a non-dimensional format fully worked examples, end-of-chapter problems, answers to selected problems, and clear illustrations and tables Am outstandingly practical resource, Structural Stability offers the reader an understanding of the fundamental principles and theory of structural stability not only in an idealized, perfectly elastic system, but also in an inelastic, imperfect system representative of the actual structural systems encountered in engineering practice.

Entire book and illustrative examples have been edited extensively, and several chapters repositioned. * Imperial units are used instead of SI units in many of the examples and problems, particularly those of a nonlinear nature that have strong implications for design, since the SI system has not been fully assimilated in practice.
