modeling steel and composite structures

The main objective of Modeling Steel and Composite Structures is to describe, with the aid of a series of examples, the methods and procedures used for the modelling of steel and composite structures. Initially the main models used to determine the structural behavior of these elements are introduced. This is followed by a detailed description of the experimental models, as well as their main requirements and precautions that have to be taken into account when performing steel and composite structural experiments in the laboratory.

The book proceeds focusing on numerical models based on the finite element method. Numerous simulations presenting a nonlinear response are illustrated, together with their main details and restrictions in terms of boundary conditions, main difficulties, solution strategies, and methods adopted to surpass convergence difficulties. Finally, examples of the use of computational intelligence methods to simulate steel and composite structures response are also presented. This is done with the aid of neural and neuro-fuzzy networks and genetic algorithmic focusing on their main advantages, scope, and limitations.

Key Features

  • Includes numerical models based in the finite element method
  • Provides numerous simulations, presenting a non-linear response
  • Contains examples of the use of computational intelligence methods to simulate steel and composite structures

Chapter One – Introduction is available on ScienceDirect for a limited time.

The main objective of this publication is to describe, with the aid of a series of examples, the methods and procedures used for the modelling of steel and composite structures. Initially the main models used to determine the structural behaviour of these elements are introduced. This is followed by a detailed description of the experimental models, as well as their main requirements and care that have to be taken into account when performing steel and composite structural experiments in the laboratory.

Another aim of this publication is to enable and boost the use of steel and composite structures in buildings. For that, it is intended to improve the training of a new generation of engineers who are familiar with its behaviour to widespread its use. The structural design development associated with new constructive techniques turns out to be a direct consequence of such ideas, but this will only be possible with a better understanding of the behaviour of the structural elements that form the global structure. In view of these facts this chapter presents a description of the main models used in the simulation of the of steel and composite structures behaviour.

Materials Science

The highly interdisciplinary field of materials science examines elements of applied physics and chemistry, as well as chemical, mechanical, civil, and electrical engineering. Nanoscience and nanotechnology in particular have yielded major innovations in this area, such as graphene and carbon nanotubes. Elsevier’s authoritative content in this area ranges from undergraduate textbooks to multi-volume reference works investigating the relationships between the structure of materials and their properties. Our journals (including Materials Today), books, and eBooks help researchers stay abreast of developments in this swiftly advancing field, coving major sub-disciplines like energy and power; metals and alloys; ceramics; composite materials; polymer science and biomaterials; interdisciplinary materials science; and structural materials.
