Analysis and design of plated structures
Edited by N E Shanmugam, C M Wang
ISBN 1 84569 116 4
This second of two volumes on plated structures reviews dynamics, particularly vibration. Chapters review the behaviour of components such as beams and plates together with materials such as steel, ceramic-metal and other composites. Together with its companion volume, this important book summarises the wealth of research on understanding the behaviour of thin-walled (plated) components. It will be an invaluable reference for all those concerned with the design, construction and service life of plated structures.
Dynamic behaviour of tapered beams; GBT-based local and global vibration analysis of thin-walled members; Dynamics of non-prismatic thin-walled hybrid composite members of generic cross section; Differential quadrature element method for vibration analysis of plates; Least squares finite difference method for vibration analysis of plates; Analytical p-elements for vibration of plates/plated structures; The extended Kantorovich method for vibration analysis of plates; A closed-form approach to modelling and dynamic analysis of beams, plates and shell; Vibration of plates with abrupt changes in properties; Relationship between vibration frequencies of higher order plate theories and classical thin plate theory; Free vibration analysis of functionally graded ceramic-metal plates; Nonlinear transient analysis of hybrid laminated plates; A hybrid strategy for parameter identification of plated structures; Hydroelastic analysis of floating plated structures.
