Structural Plasticity

Author: Wai Fah Chen
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 1461277469
Release Date: 2011-10-08
Genre: Technology & Engineering

This book is designed for use as a supplement to the textbook "Plasticity for Structural Engineers" by W.F. Chen and D.J. Han (Springer-Verlag, 1988) or other plasticity texts. The purpose is to help students and structural engineers learn and practice how to solve typical engineering plasticity problems in general and, more importantly, how to use computers to solve plasticity problems in structural engineering in particular. To this end, specific numerical algorithms in the computer software implementation of the theory together with actual code development are given. A number of solved and supplementary problems are provided, as well as two computer-aided-education (CAE) programs, to enhance the students' understanding of these subjects.

Engineering Plasticity

Author: C. R. Calladine
Publisher: Elsevier
ISBN: 9781483139876
Release Date: 2016-10-13
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Engineering Plasticity focuses on certain features of the theory of plasticity that are particularly appropriate to engineering design. Topics covered range from specification of an ideal plastic material to the behavior of structures made of idealized elastic-plastic material, theorems of plastic theory, and rotating discs. Torsion, indentation problems, and slip-line fields are also discussed. This book consists of 12 chapters and begins by providing an engineering background for the theory of plasticity, with emphasis on the use of metals in structural engineering and the nature of physical theories. The reader is then introduced to the general problem of how to set up a model of the plastic behavior of metal for use in analysis and design of structures and forming processes, paying particular attention to the plastic deformation that occurs when a specimen of metal is stressed. Subsequent chapters explore the behavior of a simple structure made of elastic-plastic material; theorems of plastic theory; rotating discs; and indentation problems. Torsion, slip-line fields, and circular plates under transverse loading are also considered, along with wire-drawing and extrusion and the effects of changes in geometry on structure. This monograph is intended for students of engineering.

Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Innenansichten eines Unrechtssystems. Der soeben aus der Lagerhaft entlassen Michail Chodorkowski schreibt bewegende Portraits seiner Mitgefangenen – und entlarvt das verrottete System der russischen Justiz. Nach über zehn Jahren Inhaftierung kennt Michail Chodorkowski, einst reichster Mann Russlands, das korrupte System der russischen Justiz von innen. In Meine Mitgefangenen porträtiert er Mithäftlinge, die er in den Straf lagern Sibiriens und Kareliens kennenlernte. Erniedrigte und Beleidigte, von einem korrupten System Weggeworfene und Verratene. Menschen, die aufgaben, und solche, die trotz allem ihre Würde bewahrten.Da ist Nikolai, wegen Drogenbesitz verhaftet, aber durch einen inoffiziellen Deal genötigt, eine zweite Straftat auf sich zu nehmen. Doch sich dazu bekennen, einer alten Frau die Handtasche weggenommen zu haben, will er um keinen Preis: einer Oma das Letzte wegnehmen, das würde er nie tun. Nur durch einen Selbstmordversuch kann er sich dem Schuldbekenntnis entziehen. Da ist Arkadi, ein Spitzel, der Neuankömmlinge in der Haftanstalt aushorcht und dafür kleine Vorteile bekommt. Da ist Sergej, der Sonderstatus genießt, weil er mit der Gefängnisleitung kooperiert, da sind gekaufte Zeugen und solche, die sich im entscheidenden Moment doch zur Wahrheit bekennen. Meine Mitgefangenen ist ein Buch über Menschen in extremen Situationen, über die Ruinen eines Systems, das Recht bringen sollte und ein Instrument der Macht geworden ist und ein Buch über Würde an einem Ort, an dem niemand sie vermutet.

Insights and Innovations in Structural Engineering, Mechanics and Computation comprises 360 papers that were presented at the Sixth International Conference on Structural Engineering, Mechanics and Computation (SEMC 2016, Cape Town, South Africa, 5-7 September 2016). The papers reflect the broad scope of the SEMC conferences, and cover a wide range of engineering structures (buildings, bridges, towers, roofs, foundations, offshore structures, tunnels, dams, vessels, vehicles and machinery) and engineering materials (steel, aluminium, concrete, masonry, timber, glass, polymers, composites, laminates, smart materials). Some contributions present the latest insights and new understanding on (i) the mechanics of structures and systems (dynamics, vibration, seismic response, instability, buckling, soil-structure interaction), and (ii) the mechanics of materials and fluids (elasticity, plasticity, fluid-structure interaction, flow through porous media, biomechanics, fracture, fatigue, bond, creep, shrinkage). Other contributions report on (iii) recent advances in computational modelling and testing (numerical simulations, finite-element modeling, experimental testing), and (iv) developments and innovations in structural engineering (planning, analysis, design, construction, assembly, maintenance, repair and retrofitting of structures). Insights and Innovations in Structural Engineering, Mechanics and Computation is particularly of interest to civil, structural, mechanical, marine and aerospace engineers. Researchers, developers, practitioners and academics in these disciplines will find the content useful. Short versions of the papers, intended to be concise but self-contained summaries of the full papers, are collected in the book, while the full versions of the papers are on the accompanying CD.

Plasticity and Creep of Metals

Author: Andrew Rusinko
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9783642212130
Release Date: 2011-07-24
Genre: Technology & Engineering

This book serves both as a textbook and a scientific work. As a textbook, the work gives a clear, thorough and systematic presentation of the fundamental postulates, theorems and principles and their applications of the classical mathematical theories of plasticity and creep. In addition to the mathematical theories, the physical theory of plasticity, the book presents the Budiansky concept of slip and its modification by M. Leonov. Special attention is given to the analysis of the advantages and shortcomings of the classical theories. In its main part, the book presents the synthetic theory of irreversible deformations, which is based on the mathematical Sanders flow plasticity theory and the physical theory, the Budiansky concept of slip. The main peculiarity of the synthetic theory is that the formulae for both plastic and creep deformation, as well their interrelations, can be derived from the single constitutive equation. Furthermore, the synthetic theory, as physical one, can take into account the real processes that take place in solids at irreversible deformation. This widens considerably the potential of the synthetic theory. In the framework of the synthetic theory such problems as creep delay, the Hazen-Kelly effect, the deformation at the break of the load trajectory, the influence of the rate of loading on the stress-strain diagram, creep at the changes of load, creep at unloading and reversed creep, have been analytically described. In the last chapter, the book shows the solution of some contemporary problems of plasticity and creep: Creep deformation at cyclic abrupt changes of temperature, The influence of irradiation on the plastic and creep deformation, Peculiarities of deformation at the phase transformation of some metals.
