Analysis and design of plated structures
Edited by N E Shanmugam, C M Wang
ISBN 1 85573 967 4
Steel plated structures are used in a variety of marine and land-based applications, such as ships, off-shore platforms, power and chemical plants, box-girder cranes and bridges. This first volume in a two-volume sequence considers the various types of buckling that plated structures are likely to encounter. Chapters also review buckling in a range of materials from steel to differing types of composite. The book discusses the behaviour of differing types of components used in steel-plated structures as well as curved, stiffened, corrugated, laminated and other types of plate design. Together with its companion volume, this is an essential reference in the design, construction and maintenance of plated structures.
