On the First Edition: "The book is a success in providing a comprehensive introduction to the use of aluminum structures . . . contains lots of useful information." —Materials & Manufacturing Processes "A must for the aluminum engineer. The authors are to be commended for their painstaking work." —Light Metal Age Technical guidance and inspiration for designing aluminum structures Aluminum Structures, Second Edition demonstrates how strong, lightweight, corrosion-resistant aluminum opens up a whole new world of design possibilities for engineering and architecture professionals. Keyed to the revised Specification for Aluminum Structures of the 2000 edition of the Aluminum Design Manual, it provides quick look-up tables for design calculations; examples of recently built aluminum structures-from buildings to bridges; and a comparison of aluminum to other structural materials, particularly steel. Topics covered include: Structural properties of aluminum alloys Aluminum structural design for beams, columns, and tension members Extruding and other fabrication techniques Welding and mechanical connections Aluminum structural systems, including space frames, composite members, and plate structures Inspection and testing Load and resistance factor design Recent developments in aluminum structures
ICSAS '99 - The Fourth International Conference on Steel and Aluminium Structures was a sequel to ICSAS '87 held in Cardiff, UK, to ICSAS '91 held in Singapore and to ICSAS '95 held in Istanbul, Turkey. The objective of the conference was to provide a forum for the discussion of recent findings and developments in the design and construction of various types of steel and aluminium structures. The conference was concerned with the analysis, modelling and design of light-weight or slender structures in which the primary material is structural steel, stainless or aluminium. The structural analysis papers presented at the conference cover both static and dynamic behaviour, instability behaviour and long-term behaviour under hygrothermal effects. The results of the latest research and development of some new structural products were also presented at the conference. A total of 76 papers and 30 posters were presented at the conference by participants from 36 countries in all 6 continents.

Tubular Structures XV contains the latest scientific and engineering developments in the field of tubular structures, as presented at the 15th International Symposium on Tubular Structures (ISTS15, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 27-29 May 2015). The International Symposium on Tubular Structures (ISTS) has a long-standing reputation for being the principal
A comprehensive introduction to the concepts of joining technologies for hybrid structures This book introduces the concepts of joining technology for polymer-metal hybrid structures by addressing current and new joining methods. This is achieved by using a balanced approach focusing on the scientific features (structural, physical, chemical, and metallurgical/polymer science phenomena) and engineering properties (mechanical performance, design, applications, etc.) of the currently available and new joining processes. It covers such topics as mechanical fastening, adhesive bonding, advanced joining methods, and statistical analysis in joining technology. Joining of Polymer-Metal Hybrid Structures: Principles and Applications is structured by joining principles, in adhesion-based, mechanical fastened, and direct-assembly methods. The book discusses such recent technologies as friction riveting, friction spot joining and ultrasonic joining. This is used for applications where the original base material characteristics must remain unchanged. Additional sections cover the main principles of statistical analysis in joining technology (illustrated with examples from the field of polymer-metal joining). Joining methods discussed include mechanical fastening (bolting, screwing, riveting, hinges, and fits of polymers and composites), adhesive bonding, and other advanced joining methods (friction staking, laser welding, induction welding, etc.). Provides a combined engineering and scientific approach used to describe principles, properties, and applications of polymer-metal hybrid joints Describes the current developments in design of experiments and statistical analysis in joining technology with emphasis on joining of polymer-metal hybrid structures Covers recent innovations in joining technology of polymer-metal hybrid joints including friction riveting, friction spot joining, friction staking, and ultrasonic joining Principles illustrated by pictures, 3D-schemes, charts, and drawings using examples from the field of polymer-metal joining Joining of Polymer-Metal Hybrid Structures: Principles and Applications will appeal to chemical, polymer, materials, metallurgical, composites, mechanical, process, product, and welding engineers, scientists and students, technicians, and joining process professionals.
The Fourth Conference on Fibrous Composites in Structural Design was a successor to the First-to-Third Conferences on Fibrous Composites in Flight Vehicle Design sponsored by the Air Force (First and Second Conferences, September 1973 and May 1974) and by NASA (Third Conference, November 1975) which were aimed at focusing national attention on flight vehicle applications of a new class of fiber reinforced materials, the advanced com posites, which afforded weight savings and other advantages which had not been previously available. The Fourth Conference, held at San Diego, California, 14-17 November 1978, was the fi rst of these conferences to be jointly sponsored by the Army, Navy and Ai r Force together with NASA, as well as being the first to give attention to non-aerospace applications of fiber reinforced composites. While the design technology for aerospace applications has reached a state of relative maturity, other areas of application such as mi litary bridging, flywheel energy storage systems, ship and surface vessel components and ground vehicle components are in an early stage of development, and it was an important objective to pinpoint where careful attention to structural design was needed in such applications to achfeve maximum structural performance payoff together with a high level of reliability and attractive economics.
