Summary and Info
Efficient methods leading to highly sparse and banded structural matricesApplication of graph theory for efficient analysis of skeletal structuresMany worked examples and exercises will help the reader to appreciate the theoryGraph theory gained initial prominence in science and engineering through its strong links with matrix algebra and computer science. Moreover, the structure of the mathematics is well suited to that of engineering problems in analysis and design. The methods of analysis in this book employ matrix algebra, graph theory and meta-heuristic algorithms, which are ideally suited for modern computational mechanics. Efficient methods are presented that lead to highly sparse and banded structural matrices. The main features of the book include: application of graph theory for efficient analysis; extension of the force method to finite element analysis; application of meta-heuristic algorithms to ordering and decomposition (sparse matrix technology); efficient use of symmetry and regularity in the force method; and simultaneous analysis and design of structures.Content Level » ResearchKeywords » Application of Graph Theory for Efficient Analysis - Finite Element Analysis - Meta-heuristic AlgorithmsRelated subjects » Computational Intelligence and Complexity - Computational Science & Engineering
