This book lays the foundation of knowledge that will allow a better understanding of nonlinear phenomena that occur in structural dynamics. This work is intended for graduate engineering students who want to expand their knowledge on the dynamic behavior of structures, specifically in the nonlinear field, by presenting the basis of dynamic balance in non‐linear behavior structures due to the material and kinematics mechanical effects. Particularly, this publication shows the solution of the equation of dynamic equilibrium for structure with nonlinear time‐independent materials (plasticity, damage and frequencies evolution), as well as those time dependent non‐linear behavior materials (viscoelasticity and viscoplasticity). The convergence conditions for the non‐linear dynamic structure solution are studied and the theoretical concepts and its programming algorithms are presented.

A comprehensive book focusing on the Force Analogy Method, a novel method for nonlinear dynamic analysis and simulation This book focusses on the Force Analogy Method, a novel method for nonlinear dynamic analysis and simulation. A review of the current nonlinear analysis method for earthquake engineering will be summarized and explained. Additionally, how the force analogy method can be used in nonlinear static analysis will be discussed through several nonlinear static examples. The emphasis of this book is to extend and develop the force analogy method to performing dynamic analysis on structures under earthquake excitations, where the force analogy method is incorporated in the flexural element, axial element, shearing element and so on will be exhibited. Moreover, the geometric nonlinearity into nonlinear dynamic analysis algorithm based on the force analogy method is included.

Nonlinear Analysis of Structures presents a complete evaluation of the nonlinear static and dynamic behavior of beams, rods, plates, trusses, frames, mechanisms, stiffened structures, sandwich plates, and shells. These elements are important components in a wide variety of structures and vehicles such as spacecraft and missiles, underwater vessels and structures, and modern housing. Today's engineers and designers must understand these elements and their behavior when they are subjected to various types of loads. Coverage includes the various types of nonlinearities, stress-strain relations and the development of nonlinear governing equations derived from nonlinear elastic theory. This complete guide includes both mathematical treatment and real-world applications, with a wealth of problems and examples to support the text. Special topics include a useful and informative chapter on nonlinear analysis of composite structures, and another on recent developments in symbolic computation. Designed for both self-study and classroom instruction, Nonlinear Analysis of Structures is also an authoritative reference for practicing engineers and scientists. One of the world's leaders in the study of nonlinear structural analysis, Professor Sathyamoorthy has made significant research contributions to the field of nonlinear mechanics for twenty-seven years. His foremost contribution to date has been the development of a unique transverse shear deformation theory for plates undergoing large amplitude vibrations and the examination of multiple mode solutions for plates. In addition to his notable research, Professor Sathyamoorthy has also developed and taught courses in the field at universities in India, Canada, and the United States.

Recent years have witnessed an increased need for applying nonlinear analysis in the assessment and design of civil engineering structures, particularly for structures subject to extreme loading. Nonlinear Structural Analysis for Engineers looks at how nonlinear analysis can be applied to a variety of different structures, including frames, plates and shells, whole buildings, and cable/membrane structures. The examples develop from simple models to detailed ones, based on finite element discretisation, focussing on the underlying methods/formulations. It illustrates real problems, through the use of the advanced nonlinear structural analysis program ADAPTIC, developed by the author. Suitable for students on undergraduate and post-graduate engineering courses, Nonlinear Structural Analysis for Engineers focuses on examples from civil engineering. Using simplified models, it demonstrates nonlinear structural analysis with emphasis on explicit cause and effect. This book is also an essential reference for researchers and practising engineers.

Analysis of Geometrically Nonlinear Structures

Analysis of Geometrically Nonlinear Structures

Where it was once enough to have any analysis given a complex configuration, the profession today is much more demanding. How engineers should be more demanding is the subject of this book.

The availability of computers has, in real terms, moved forward the practice of structural engineering. Where it was once enough to have any analysis given a complex configuration, the profession today is much more demanding. How engineers should be more demanding is the subject of this book. In terms of the theory of structures, the importance of geometric nonlinearities is explained by the theorem which states that "In the presence of prestress, geometric nonlinearities are of the same order of magnitude as linear elastic effects in structures. " This theorem implies that in most cases (in all cases of incremental analysis) geometric nonlinearities should be considered. And it is well known that problems of buckling, cable nets, fabric structures, ... REQUIRE the inclusion of geometric nonlinearities. What is offered in the book which follows is a unified approach (for both discrete and continuous systems) to geometric nonlinearities which incidentally does not require a discussion of large strain. What makes this all work is perturbation theory. Let the equations of equilibrium for a system be written as where P represents the applied loads, F represents the member forces or stresses, and N represents the operator which describes system equilibrium.

In September 2014, the Applied Technology Council (ATC) commenced a task order project under National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Contract SB1341-13-CQ-0009 to develop guidance for nonlinear dynamic analysis (ATC-114 Project). The need for such guidance is identified as high-priority research and development topic (Proposed Research Initiative 6) in NIST GCR 14-917-27 report, Nonlinear Analysis Research and Development Program for Performance-Based Seismic Engineering (NIST, 2013), which outlines a research and development program for addressing the gap between state-of-the-art academic research and state-of-practice engineering applications for nonlinear structural analysis, analytical structural modeling, and computer simulation in support of performance-based seismic engineering. In addition, the NIST GCR 09-917-2 report, Research Required to Support Full Implementation of Performance-Based Seismic Design (NIST, 2009), also identified the need to improve analytical models for buildings and their components in near-collapse seismic loading. To help fill this gap, the ATC-114 Project developed a series of reports that provide general nonlinear modeling and nonlinear analysis guidance, as well as guidance specific to the following two structural systems: structural steel moment frames and reinforced concrete moment frames. This Part I Guidelines document is the first in the series and provides general guidance. The companion Part II Guidelines (NIST GCR 17-917-46v2 and 17-917-46v3) provide further details for steel moment frame and reinforced moment frame systems, respectively. It is envisioned that these Guidelines will be used in conjunction with available performance-assessment provisions, or their equivalent, that are appropriate for the specific circumstances.
