Exact and Approximate Static Structural Reanalysis

  • B. H. V. Topping
Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 325)

Abstract

The ‘exact’ and approximate methods of structural re-analysis are reviewed in this chapter. With the advent of less expensive computing hardware, structural engineers are employing optimization and non-linear analysis techniques in new application areas which require more computational power hence re-analysis techniques are likely to become more important over the next decade.
