Description


This book will examine structural mechanics from a fundamental point of view, and allow students to use logical inference and creative reasoning to solve problems versus rote memorization, which is what most textbooks in the field currently offer. It will present theory and also emphasize the relevant mathematical concepts as related to structural mechanics in each chapter. It will include problems, examples, and case studies throughout, and present simulation technique employed in structural engineering software. It will explain the Finite Element Method for elastic bodies, trusses, frames, and more, and present other modern methods of structural analysis.

Presents the material from the general (theory and fundamentals) to the particular (specific applications).

Emphasizes the relevant mathematical concepts as related to structural mechanics in each chapter.

Presents analysis of ductile structures and modern methods in analysis of stability and dynamics.

Explains the Finite Element Method for elastic bodies, trusses, frames, and more.

Includes numerous worked examples and case studies throughout.

About the Author


Alexander Ivanovich Rusakov was more than 35 years engaged in scientific and teaching work in academic and design institutions; continues scientific research in construction design and publishes scientific papers and textbooks. A. Rusakov was born in 1955 in the city of Rostov-on-Don (RF); graduated Rostov State University with a degree in physics. In the period of 1984 to 2001 he has been teaching at Rostov Military Institute of Rocket Forces, where he defended his candidate thesis in 1988 and then doctoral thesis in 1999. From 2001 to 2006 he held the chair in structural mechanics at Rostov State University of Transport Communication. From 2006 to 2013 Dr. Rusakov works in design organizations of Rostov-on-Don holding engineering positions, where he continues scientific investigation in construction design and educational activity with engineering personnel. His latest position is the chief designer at South Regional Scientific Research and Design Institute of City Planning (Rostov-on-Don). Professor Rusakov was the top lecturer on a number of mathematical and technical courses as well as courses in mechanics, including mechanics of materials, structural mechanics, and theory of elasticity. He is the sole author of two books, Strength of Materials and Structural Mechanics. Some studies and research results by Dr. Rusakov are presented at the site http: //www.rusakov.donpac.ru/index1.htm.
