  • Introduction

    Structural analysis, in its general definition, is the determination of the effects of loads on physical structures and their components. Structures subject to this type of analysis include all that must withstand loads, such as buildings, bridges, vehicles, machinery, furniture, attire, soil strata, prostheses and biological tissue. Structural analysis incorporates the fields of applied mechanics, materials science and applied mathematics to compute a structure's deformations, internal forces, stresses, support reactions, accelerations, and stability. The results of the analysis are used to verify a structure's fitness for use, often saving physical tests. Structural analysis is thus a key part of the engineering design of structures.

    Applicability, comprehensiveness and complexity of this field have attracted many researchers to increase the accuracy of the solution by challenging the simplifying assumptions and application of new techniques. These efforts led to the increasingly development of various aspects of this branch of science.

    Now, Conditions have been provided to the latest advances in structural analysis be presented and evaluated. Some, but not all topics in this section include:

    Structural Analysis
    1. Linear and Nonlinear Analysis
    2. Joints, Connections & Welding
    3. Contact
    4. Durability, Fatigue & Fracture
    5. Thermal Structural Analysis

    Dynamics & Testing
    1. Crash Simulation
    2. Seismic
    3. Linear Dynamics
    4. Non-linear Dynamics
    5. Combining Physical & Virtual Testing
    6. Impact
