Vibration of Axially-Loaded Structures

This book concerns the vibration and the stability of slender structural components. The loss of stability of structures is an important aspect of structural mechanics and is presented here in terms of dynamic behavior. A variety of structural components are analyzed with a view to predict their response to various (primarily axial) loading conditions. A number of different techniques are prese

Practical Guide To Designed Experiments: A Unified Modular Approach of Axially-Loaded Structures

Many engineers and scientists have receive little or no training in designed experiments, and any courses that are available tend to be either abstract and divorced from practical considerations or strictly practical-lacking the rigor and depth necessary for true, long-term understanding.

Practical Guide to Designed Experiments: A Unified Modular Approach bridges that gap, presenting

Lattice Boltzmann Method: Fundamentals and Engineering Applications with Computer Codes

Lattice Boltzmann Method introduces the lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) for solving transport phenomena – flow, heat and mass transfer – in a systematic way. Providing explanatory computer codes throughout the book, the author guides readers through many practical examples, such as:
- flow in isothermal and non-isothermal lid driven cavities 
- flow over obstacles&

The Coupled Theory of Mixtures in Geomechanics with Applications

This book contains recent advances on theory of mixtures in geo-mechanics. It presents all the necessary material that is published and scattered in different journals.
