Stability of Structures: Elastic, Inelastic, Fracture, and Damage Theories
By Zdenek P. Bazant, Luigi Cedolin,
Exploration of principles and applications of stability analysis emphasizes nonelastic stability. Topics include modern stability problems of fracture and damage, thermodynamic principles of stability in irreversible systems, viscoelastic and viscoplastic buckling, other key areas. Numerous examples; 700 exercise problems. 1991 edition.
