Numerical Structural Analysis
Methods, Models and Pitfalls
Authors: Perelmuter, Anatoly, Slivker, Vladimir
The book addresses software design issues related to methods for the analysis of construction engineering by means of modern CAD (computer-aided design) systems and provides validation for their use. Special attention is paid to the importance of the relevant mechanical models, their validity, and their external and internal coordination. There is a great deal of practical advice with examples of typical and atypical problems and errors, as well as tips for engineers to identify and avoid traps and pitfalls. Written for professional engineers and scientists, especially, for high-level developers and for CAD users, this book is also aimed at university professors and students preparing to work in this field.
