Global Nonlinear Dynamics for Engineering Design and System Safety

  • Stefano Lenci
  • Giuseppe Rega
  • Uniquely highlights the role of global dynamics for the analysis and control of nonlinear response, and for interpreting/predicting experimental behavior

  • The first book on dynamical integrity as a unified perspective for improving load carrying capacity and safety of engineering systems via a novel design paradigm

  • Moves from slender structures/reduced-order models in macro and micro/nano-mechanics to multidimensional models representative of real world applications

About this book


This is the first book which exploits concepts and tools of global nonlinear dynamics for bridging the gap between theoretical and practical stability of systems/structures, and for possibly enhancing the engineering design in macro-, micro- and nano-mechanics. Addressed topics include complementing theoretical and practical stability to achieve load carrying capacity; dynamical integrity for analyzing global dynamics, for interpreting/predicting experimental behavior, for getting hints towards engineering design; techniques for control of chaos; response of uncontrolled and controlled system/models in applied mechanics and structural dynamics by also considerung the effect of system imperfections; from relatively simple systems to multidimensional models representative of real world applications; potential and expected impact of global dynamics for engineering design.
