Editorial Reviews

Review

"...clear and given in an understandable manner...recommended to practicing engineers..." (Zeitschrift Fur Angewandte Mathematik Und Mechanik, 2006)

From the Back Cover

A comprehensive reference for plate behavior analysis

Theories and Applications of Plate Analysis is a unique, comprehensive volume covering static, dynamic and elastic stability analysis of plates. This valuable book addresses a large spectrum of plate problems and their analytical, numerical, computer-aided and engineering solution techniques. This book includes more than 140 descriptive, worked-out examples, making this text and reference book extremely useful in academic and professional environments.

Utilizing SI units throughout, all mathematical tools are clearly and systematically developed within the book (with an understanding of differential-integral calculus and matrix algebra) to work with such topics as:

  • Classical, numerical, computer-aided and engineering solution techniques
  • Linear, nonlinear and moderately thick plate problems
  • Finite difference and gridwork methods
  • Finite element and finite strip methods
  • Computer-based plate analysis
  • Yield-line methods
  • Free and forced vibrations of plates
  • Elastic stability analysis

Complete with a helpful CD-ROM containing 170 readily usable plate formulas and a user-friendly finite element program system, WinPlatePrimer, for static and dynamic analysis of real-life plate problems, Theories and Applications of Plate Analysis is a handy, must-have book for practicing engineers and graduate students in the fields of civil, mechanical, aeronautical, marine, architectural and mining engineering.

By Indrajit Chowdhury on February 23, 2006
Format: Hardcover
Author has collected a significant array of various plate problems and presented them in one literature which is surely a very commnedable effort.

Engineers and Scientists working in the area of various plate problems would find this literature of immense help, wherein they will not have to rummage through various publications to find out typical solution to the problem he is looking for.

However it is felt that some of the basic derivations( specially the classical part) are a bit too brief and further elaboration could have benefitted specially those, who are new to the topic and not so comfortable with fourth order differential equations related to the plate.

An elaboration( even a brief one) on Dynamic response of plates on elastic foundations and some of the work carried out in this area by Thomson and Kobori, G.Warburton to name a few would have made the book more complete.

Over all a very good monograph as a quick reference to plate problems for both practicing engineers and researchers.

Format: Hardcover
A most comprehensive book (text and reference) dealing with all aspects of plate analysis that can be used to solve practical plate problems in civil, structural, architectural, mechanical, aerospace, marine and mining engineering. Easy to read with many easy to follow examples. Math knowledge is relatively modest, only a familiarity with algebra, calculus & matrix operations is required. Every solution and technique presented is critically evaluated for efficiency and accuracy and compared to other methods. The handy accompanying CD has 170 plate formulas and a finite element model for static and dynamic analysis of moderately large plate problems. This is a must for your reference library. Take advantage of Dr Szilard's vast knowledge and wonderful writing style. This book should be considered for using as a primary text for college engineering classes.

Excellent for every person involved with analysis, applications and/or theory of plates - not necessary for structural in civil , also applied to frame on off road equipment.
Extremely well written. RECOMMENDED!
