Description

Stop searching through the endless amount of literature to find the most recent information on plate buckling. The authors of Handbook of Thin Plate Buckling and Post Buckling have already done the work for you. Detailed and clearly written, the book contains a comprehensive, up-to-date treatment of the buckling and postbuckling behavior of perfect and imperfect thin plates. The authors study, in detail and with specific solved examples, the essential factors that influence critical buckling loads, initial mode shapes, and postbuckling behavior for thin plates. Through their analysis of rectangular, circular, and annular plates, they present valuable information, some of which has never before been published in book form. Such topics include hygrothermal buckling, viscoelastic and plastic buckling, and buckling of various thickness plates. With this important collection, the Handbook of Thin Plate Buckling and Post Buckling provides you with a one-stop source of current research findings.show more

Review quote

"The authors present a significant source of information, giving the results in comparison and often in generalized, ready-to-use form, which makes them useful not only for solving practical problems of design and engineering, but also for testing newly invented analytical and numerical algorithms. Finally, the explicitly place list of unsolved problems makes it handy for tutorial and research work in high school practice. On balance, this well-written book is a reader-friendly and goo-organized handbook in the field of buckling and postbuckling of thin plates. It can be highly recommended to experts in mechanics of thin-walled structures as well as to engineers." -Zentralblatt f]r Mathematik "an impressive collection of important topics in these areas not found in a single text book published so fara worthwhile addition to any engineering library here and elsewherea very valuable addition to the reference market." -M. Sathyamoorthy, Chair, Department of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering, Clarkson Engineering "fills a long-standing need as a source of data on plate buckling. It should be in the library of every organization dealing with structural design and structural research on plate-type structures." --Applied Mechanical Rev., Vol. 54, No. 5show more
