Non-Classical Problems in the Theory of Elastic Stability by Isaac E. Elishakoff
Book DescriptionWhen a structure is put under an increasing compressive load, it becomes unstable and buckling occurs. Buckling is a particularly significant concern in designing shell structures such as aircraft, automobiles, ships, or bridges. This book discusses stability analysis and buckling problems and offers practical tools for dealing with uncertainties that exist in real systems. The techniques are based on two complementary theories which are developed in the text. First, the probabilistic theory of stability is presented, with particular emphasis on reliability. Both theoretical and computational issues are discussed. Secondly, the authors present the alternative to probability based on the notion of 'anti-optimization', a theory that is valid when the necessary information for probabilistic analysis is absent, that is, when only scant data are available. Design engineers, researchers, and graduate students in aerospace, mechanical, marine, and civil engineering who are concerned with issues of structural integrity will find this book a useful reference source.

Mechanics of Functionally Graded Material Structures, Hardback (December 2015)
Aim of this book is to provide an account of the structures that are made of functionally graded materials with purpose of customizing the materials with desired purpose.
Resolution of the Twentieth Century Conundrum in Elastic Stability, Hardback (July 2014)
Introduction; Probabilistic Resolution; Hybrid Uncertainty in Imperfections and Axial Loading; Non-Probabilistic Resolution; Nontraditional Imperfections in Shells; Lower Bound for Buckling Load in Presence of Uncertainty; Miscellaneous Topics;
Optimization and Anti-Optimization of Structures Under Uncertainty, Hardback (September 2009)
Shows how various optimization techniques are used in the novel anti-optimization technique, and how the structural optimization can be exponentially enhanced by incorporating the concept of worst-case scenario, thereby increasing the safety of the structures designed in various fields of engineering.
