Parameter identification of materials and structures by Zenon Mróz( Book )

13 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The nature and the human creations are full of complex phenomena, which sometimes can be observed but rarely follow our hypotheses. The best we can do is to build a parametric model and then try to adjust the unknown parameters based on the available observations. This topic, called parameter identification, is discussed in this book for materials and structures. The present volume of lecture notes follows a very successful advanced school, which we had the honor to coordinate in Udine, October 6-10, 2003. The authors of this volume present a wide spectrum of theories, methods and applications related to inverse and parameter identification problems. We thank the invited lecturers and the authors of this book for their contributions, the participants of the course for their active participation and the interesting discussions as well as the people of CISMfor their hospitality and their well-known professional help.

Nonsmooth/nonconvex mechanics : modeling, analysis, and numerical methods by ASME Mechanics and Materials Conference( Book )

9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nonsmooth and nonconvex models arise in several important applications of mechanics and engineering. The interest in this field is growing from both mathematicians and engineers. The study of numerous industrial applications, including contact phenomena in statics and dynamics or delamination effects in composites, require the consideration of nonsmoothness and nonconvexity. The mathematical topics discussed in this book include variational and hemivariational inequalities, duality, complementarity, variational principles, sensitivity analysis, eigenvalue and resonance problems, and minimax problems. Applications are considered in the following areas among others: nonsmooth statics and dynamics, stability of quasi- static evolution processes, friction problems, adhesive contact and debonding, inverse problems, pseudoelastic modeling of phase transitions, chaotic behavior in nonlinear beams, and nonholonomic mechanical systems. This volume contains 22 chapters written by various leading researchers and presents a cohesive and authoritative overview of recent results and applications in the area of nonsmooth and nonconvex mechanics. Audience: Faculty, graduate students, and researchers in applied mathematics, optimization, control and engineering
Nonsmooth mechanics of solids by J Haslinger( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mechanics have played an important role in mathematics, from infinitesimal calculus, calculus of variations, partial differential equations and numerical methods (finite elements). Originally, mechanics treated smooth objects. Technological progress has evoked the necessity to model and solve more complicated problems, like unilateral contact and friction, plasticity, delamination and adhesion, advanced materials, etc. The new tools include convex analysis, differential calculus for convex functions, and subgradients of convex functions and extensions for nonconvex problems. Nonsmooth mechanics is a relatively complex field, and requires a good knowledge of mechanics and a good background in some parts of modern mathematics. The present volume of lecture notes follows a very successful advanced school, with the aim to cover as much as possible all these aspects. Therefore the contributions cover mechanical aspects as well as the mathematical and numerical treatment

Recent Advances in Contact Mechanics Papers Collected at the 5th Contact Mechanics International Symposium (CMIS2009), April 28-30, 2009, Chania, Greece by G. E Stavroulakis( Book )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contact mechanics is an active research area with deep theoretical and numerical roots. The links between nonsmooth analysis and optimization with mechanics have been investigated intensively during the last decades, especially in Europe. The study of complementarity problems, variational -, quasivariational- and hemivariational inequalities arising in contact mechanics and beyond is a hot topic for interdisciplinary research and cooperation. The needs of industry for robust solution algorithms suitable for large scale applications and the regular updates of the respective elements in major commercial computational mechanics codes, demonstrate that this interaction is not restricted to the academic environment. The contributions of this book have been selected from the participants of the CMIS 2009 international conference which took place in Crete and continued a successful series of specialized contact mechanics conferences

Fuzzy control optimized by a Multi-Objective Differential Evolution algorithm for vibration suppression of smart structures( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Smart structures include elements of active, passive or hybrid control. The fuzzy control is considered which is a suitable tool for the systematic development of active control strategies. A new Multi-Objective Differential Evolution algorithm for the calculation of the free parameters in active control systems is proposed and tested. In particular, the usage of MODE with a combination of continuous and discrete variables for the optimal design of the controller is proposed. Numerical applications on smart piezoelastic beams are presented. The results obtained are compared with the ones obtained with the fuzzy controller optimized by a MOPSO algorithm
Quasidifferentiability and nonsmooth modelling in mechanics, engineering, and economics by Vladimir F Dem'yanov( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Nonsmooth energy functions govern phenomena which occur frequently in nature and in all areas of life. They constitute a fascinating subject in mathematics and permit the rational understanding of yet unsolved or partially solved questions in mechanics, engineering and economics. This is the first book to provide a complete and rigorous presentation of the quasidifferentiability approach to nonconvex, possibly nonsmooth, energy functions, of the derivation and study of the corresponding variational expressions in mechanics, engineering and economics, and of their numerical treatment. The new variational formulations derived are illustrated by many interesting numerical problems. The techniques presented will permit the reader to check any solution obtained by other heuristic techniques for nonconvex, nonsmooth energy problems. A civil, mechanical or aeronautical engineer can find in the book the only existing mathematically sound technique for the formulation and study of nonconvex, nonsmooth energy problems. Audience: The book will be of interest to pure and applied mathematicians, physicists, researchers in mechanics, civil, mechanical and aeronautical engineers, structural analysts and software developers. It is also suitable for graduate courses in nonlinear mechanics, nonsmooth analysis, applied optimization, control, calculus of variations and computational mechanics
