The increase in the popularity and the number of potential applications of the finite strip method has created a demand for a definitive text/reference on the subject. Fulfilling this demand, The Finite Strip Method provides practicing engineers, researchers, and students with a comprehensive introduction and theoretical development, and a complete treatment of current practical applications of the method.

Written by experts who are arguably the world's leading authorities in the field, The Finite Strip Method covers both the classical strip and the newly developed spline strip and computed shape function strip. Applications in structural engineering, with particular focus on practical structures such as slab-beam bridges, box girder bridges, and tall buildings are discussed extensively. Applications in geotechnology are also covered, as are recently formulated applications in nonlinear analysis.

The Finite Strip Method is a unique book, supplying much-needed information by well-known and highly regarded authors.

Editorial Reviews

This reference text for engineers and researchers covers advances in the field of finite strip method which allow greater application of this form of analysis in not only structural engineering, but also the geotechnical field. After a detailed introduction, applications to plate bending, plane stress, three dimensional analysis, mapping complex geometry into regular domains, and other areas of engineering are discussed. Developments in non-linear applications and the transformation approach for semi-infinite domains are also covered. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
