Finite Element Analysis and Design of Steel and Steel Concrete Composite Bridges Book Review:

In recent years, bridge engineers and researchers are increasingly turning to the finite element method for the design of Steel and Steel-Concrete Composite Bridges. However, the complexity of the method has made the transition slow. Based on twenty years of experience, Finite Element Analysis and Design of Steel and Steel-Concrete Composite Bridges provides structural engineers and researchers with detailed modeling techniques for creating robust design models. The book’s seven chapters begin with an overview of the various forms of modern steel and steel–concrete composite bridges as well as current design codes. This is followed by self-contained chapters concerning: nonlinear material behavior of the bridge components, applied loads and stability of steel and steel–concrete composite bridges, and design of steel and steel–concrete composite bridge components. Constitutive models for construction materials including material non-linearity and geometric non-linearity The mechanical approach including problem setup, strain energy, external energy and potential energy), mathematics behind the method Commonly available finite elements codes for the design of steel bridges Explains how the design information from Finite Element Analysis is incorporated into Building information models to obtain quantity information, cost analysis

Its objective is the real1stic assessment of the actual behaV10r of structures by numerical methods.

Finite Element Modeling of Reinforced Concrete Beams Externally Strengthened by FRP Composites Book Review:

Three-dimensional finite element models are developed to simulate the behavior of four fill-scale reinforced concrete beams. The beams are constructed with different fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) strengthening schemes, and are modeled using ANSYS, a commercially available finite element analysis program. The experimental beams replicate the transverse beams of the Horsetail Creek Bridge, and were constructed and tested at Oregon State University. The finite element models use a smeared cracking approach for the concrete and three-dimensional layered elements to model the FRP composites. It was found that the finite element models could effectively simulate the behavior of the full-scale beams. Results obtained from the finite element analysis are presented and compared with the experimental data from the full-scale beam tests through the linear and nonlinear ranges up to failure. Comparisons are made for load-strain plots, load-deflection plots, first cracking loads, loads at failure, and crack patterns at failure. The results from the finite element analysis show good agreement with those from the experimental data and support hand calculation predictions for the experiment very well. The crack patterns at failure predicted by the finite element program strongly corroborate the failure modes observed for the full-scale beam tests. Recommendations for finite element modeling improvement are included.

Hybrid Composite Precast Systems Book Review:

Hybrid Composite Precast Systems: Numerical Investigation to Construction focuses on the design and construction of novel composite precast frame systems that permit almost effortless erection and structural efficiency. The precast frame systems discussed in the book are similar to that of steel frames, but offer similar savings to concrete frames. The design of connections and detailed analysis of their structural behavior is discussed in detail. Fundamentals with regards to the post yield behavior of concrete and metal are also presented to illustrate how these two different materials are integrated together to remove individual material drawbacks. Readers are given a broad introduction to existing technologies that are then combined with a description of the construction methods the author proposes. This book will help the end users become familiar with the existing types of structural forms, not just the "Lego" type frame system that the author proposes. Discusses how traditional construction methods can be replaced by innovative hybrid composite precast frame systems that provide rapid and effortless erection capabilities and structural efficiency Contains several design examples using non-linear finite element analysis completed with Abaqus based-software Contains new milestone inventions in construction that offer structural engineering solutions using a novel, modularized hybrid frame system Provides information on structural testing that verifies the accuracy of the structural design
