Product Description


"This book would be a useful resource for a graduate-level course...Recommended." - H. I. Epstein, University of Connecticut

Book Description

Structural Impact is concerned with the behaviour of structures and components subjected to large dynamic, impact and explosive loads which produce inelastic deformations and is of interest for safety calculations, hazard assessments and energy absorbing systems throughout industry. This book introduces the rigid plastic methods of analysis for the dynamic response of beams, plates and shells, and discusses dynamic material properties, dynamic progressive buckling, which develops in several energy absorbing systems, and the phenomenon of dynamic plastic buckling. The author includes a chapter on the scaling laws because they are important for relating the response of small-scale experimental tests to the dynamic behaviour of full-scale prototypes.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is one of the most comprehensive references available, covering the dynamic collapse behavior of simple structural elements such as beams, plates, and shells. This book provides a wealth of information for civil, mechanical, or materials engineers engaged in solving simple impact problems.
