Scaling of Structural Strength by Zdenek P. Bazant

Book Description

This book is concerned with a leading-edge topic of great interest and importance, exemplifying the relationship between experimental research, material modeling, structural analysis and design. It focuses on the effect of structure size on structural strength and failure behaviour. Bazant's theory has found wide application to all quasibrittle materials, including rocks, ice, modern fiber composites and tough ceramics. The topic of energetic scaling, considered controversial until recently, is finally getting the attention it deserves, mainly as a result of Bazant's pioneering work. In this new edition an extra section of data and new appendices covering twelve new application developments are included. * The first book to show the 'size effect' theory of structure size on strength * Presents the principles and applications of Bazant's pioneering work on structural strength * Revised edition with new material on topics including asymptotic matching, flexural strength of fiber-composite laminates, polymeric foam fractures and the design of reinforced concrete beams

Probabilistic Mechanics of Quasibrittle Structures by Zdenek P. Bazant Probabilistic Mechanics of Quasibrittle Structures, Hardback (March 2017)

This book presents an experimentally validated probabilistic strength theory of structures made of concrete, composites, ceramics and other quasibrittle materials.

Stability of Structures by Zdenek P. Bazant Stability of Structures, Paperback (August 2010)

A crucial element of structural and continuum mechanics, stability theory has limitless applications in civil, mechanical, aerospace, naval and nuclear engineering. This text presents a comprehensive exposition of the principles and applications of stability analysis. It is suitable for engineers and researchers.

Fracture and Size Effect in Concrete and Other Quasibrittle Materials by Zdenek P. Bazant Fracture and Size Effect in Concrete and Other Quasibrittle Materials, Hardback (December 1997)

Presents a discussion of the theory of size effect and scaling of failure loads in structures. This book includes derivations and examples, from which readers can gain an understanding of fracture and size effect in concrete and other quasibrittle materials.
