Editorial Reviews

Review

From the reviews:

"The book of Librescu and Song is a monograph devoted to the theory of composite anisotropic thin-walled beams … . The monograph can be recommended to research engineers in applied mechanics and in application areas of aeronautical and aerospace, of mechanical, civil, and naval engineering, but also to graduate students and lecturers. … enables the reader to get an excellent overview and a deep insight in the thin walled anisotropic beam theory." (Johannes Altenbach, Zeitschrift für Angewandte Mathematik und Mechanik, Vol. 86 (8), 2006)

"This monograph is concerned with linear and nonlinear theories of composite thin-walled beams, developed by the authors and their collaborators. … The material of the book is well presented. … The book will be of interest to all those working in the field of thin-walled structures. Specifically, graduate students in mechanical and aerospace engineering and applied mathematics as well as practicing engineers will find new and important results in this book." (Teodor Atanackovic, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1108 (9), 2007)

Format: Paperback
Very useful scientific book. It cover many new aspects of aircraft composite structures including the smart materials applied in helicopter rotor blades etc. This book successful complement the new monograph of D.Hodges "Nonlinear Composite Beam Theory". Analysis and Performance of Fiber Composites As researcher in aircraft mechanics I'm overjoyed for my last purchase from Amazon.

By GTi16V on February 10, 2011
Format: Paperback
This beam is by far one of the best books in thin-walled theory.
Due to its latest, this book is probably the best for now.
Librescu is a professor at my school.
After he has gone, I had no one helping solve a NASA research problem.
However, this book is still a big favor that helped me go through the problem finally.

The following are Librescu's untold personalities worth to know.

He, the only few persons, in this world, who do not even have to write a single line of proposal to request funding from NASA.
He, whom I had never seen using a computer.
He, who always used a overhead projector in a presentation.
He, who solved thousands of unsolvable NASA problems in scratch papers.
He, who came here to make this planet a better place to live.
