MASTAN2 is an interactive computer graphics program packaged with the Matrix Structural Analysis, 2/e text by William McGuire of Cornell University, Richard H. Gallagher of Clarkson University, and Ronald D. Ziemian of Bucknell University. The CD-ROM contains the MATLAB(R) based program MASTAN2. The program, developed by the authors of Matrix Structural Analysis, 2/e provides for graphically interactive structure definition, linear and nonlinear analysis, and display of results. It contains the option of including independently student-written analysis programs or modules. It has been designed to reinforce the text by providing a ready vehicle for applying the written material and visualizing the results. Software Features: * Includes Tutorial for self-instruction on use of the program. * Includes the MATLAB(R) Runtime Server so users without MATLAB can still use MASTAN2. * Preprocessing options include definition of structural geometry, element properties, supports, and loads.* Routines for first- and second-order elastic and inelastic static analysis of two- and three- dimensional frames and trusses are provided.* Postprocessing capabilities include the interpretation of structural behavior through deformation and force diagrams, graphical response curves, and printed output.* MASTAN2 has been written in modular format; users with access to MATLAB may develop and incorporate additional or alternative analysis routines.* The program's linear and nonlinear analysis routines are based on methods presented in Matrix Structural Analysis, 2nd Edition, by McGuire, Gallagher, and Ziemian. System/Application Requirements: * MASTAN2 is contained on an ISO-9660 formatted CD-ROM.* MASTAN2 requires 2.5 MB of free disk space and will run with the following versions of MATLAB.* MATLAB 5.3: PC Microsoft Windows 95, 98, or NT 4.0 and UNIX or Linux.* MATLAB 5.2: Macintosh.* Student Edition of MATLAB 5.0 or 5.3: Windows 95, 98, or NT 4.0 and Macintosh.* For users without access to MATLAB, the MATLAB Runtime Server 5.3 and a compatible version of MASTAN2 are included on the CD-ROM. Minimum system requirements include: * Microsoft Windows 95, 98, or NT 4.0 * Intel 486, Pentium, Pentium Pro or Pentium II based PC 16 MB RAM and 20 MB free disk space 8-bit graphics adapter and display (for 256 simultaneous colors).

The second edition of this text covers: the basic concepts and procedures of linear analysis of frameworks by matrix methods; the underlying theories of elasticity; the principles of virtual work; and the application issues such as the solution of linear equations and the treatment of constraints. In addition, it accounts for changes in the use and the teaching of matrix structural analysis that have taken place in the 1980s and 1990s. It also incorporates advances in the art of analysis, that are regarded as suitable for use in structural engineering design practice now and of increasing importance in the years just ahead. Chief among these are an introduction to nonlinear frame analysis and an interactive computer graphics computer program. Included with the text is a CD-ROM containing the MATLAB computer graphics program MASTRAN2. The book contains both elementary and relatively advanced material.

This book describes the theoretical foundations of inelasticity, its numerical formulation and implementation. The subject matter described herein constitutes a representative sample of state-of-the-art methodology currently used in inelastic calculations. Among the numerous topics covered are small deformation plasticity and viscoplasticity, convex optimization theory, integration algorithms for the constitutive equation of plasticity and viscoplasticity, the variational setting of boundary value problems and discretization by finite element methods. Also addressed are the generalization of the theory to non-smooth yield surface, mathematical numerical analysis issues of general return mapping algorithms, the generalization to finite-strain inelasticity theory, objective integration algorithms for rate constitutive equations, the theory of hyperelastic-based plasticity models and small and large deformation viscoelasticity. "Computational Inelasticity" will be of great interest to researchers and graduate students in various branches of engineering, especially civil, aeronautical and mechanical, and applied mathematics.

This book provides comprehensive treatment of the nonlinear behavior of various types of structural elements such as beams, frames, trusses, mechanisms, plates, shells, and sandwich and composite structural elements. Information is included on the various types of nonlinearities, stress-strain relations and the development of nonlinear governing equations derived from nonlinear elastic theory. The author has designed the book to strike a good balance between the mathematical and applied side of the topic. Many applications, examples, and problems are presented in the text.

For courses in finite element methods, finite element analysis taught in departments of Civil, Mechanical, Aerospace, Agriculture, and Mechanics departments. Course for which this book is appropriate is usually taught to seniors or graduate students.Comprehensive -- this text explores the full range of finite element methods used in engineering practice for actual applications in computer-aided design. It provides not only an introduction to finite element methods and the commonality in the various techniques, but explores state-of-the-art methods as well -- with a focus on what are deemed to become "classical techniques" -- procedures that will be standard and authoritative for finite element analysis for years to come.

This detailed guide to the fundamentals of non-linear finite element analysis provides an engineering rather than a mathematical bias. Aimed at those who wish to use non-linear techniques to solve practical problems, it discusses the main ideas of geometric non-linearity and explores continuum mechanics, plasticity, element technology, and stability theory and solution procedures. The author also gives an introduction to recent research in this developing field. Many of the ideas considered are illustrated with a simple non-linear finite element computer program for which FORTRAN listings, data and subroutines are included. The logic can also be followed without this finer detail since these computer programs and subroutines are also represented by examples and flowcharts. The practical approach will appeal to professional engineers, researchers and senior undergraduate and graduate students in civil, structural, aeronautical and mechanical engineering.

In fields such as aeronautical, civil, mechanical and structural engineering, non-linear analysis techniques are being widely used for the solving of practical engineering problems. With this in mind the author has selected an engineering rather than a mathematical bias. This second volume builds on the fundamental ideas of geometric non-linearity explained in Volume One, introducing the reader to more detailed, advanced topics. Continuum mechanics, plasticity and stability theory are covered in greater depth as it explores the research on non-linear finite elements. To supplement the text a set of programmes are available on the Internet via anonymous FTP.
