Description

The effect of combined extreme transient loadings on a structure is not well understood – whether the source is man-made, such as an explosion and fire, or natural, as an earthquake or extreme wind loading. A critical assessment of current knowledge is timely (with Fukushima-like disasters or terrorist threats).

The central issue in all these problems is structural integrity, along with their transient nature, their unexpectedness, and often the uncertainty behind their cause. No single traditional scientific discipline provides full answer, but a number of tools need to be brought together: nonlinear dynamics, probability theory, some understanding of the physical nature of the problem, as well as modeling and computational techniques for representing inelastic behavior mechanisms.

The book covers model building for different engineering structures and provides detailed presentations of extreme loading conditions. A number of illustrations are given: quantifying a plane crash or explosion induced impact loading, quantifying the effects of strong earthquake motion, quantifying the impact and long-duration effects of strong stormy winds - along with a relevant framework for using modern computational tools. The book considers the levels of reserve in existing structures, and ways of reducing the negative impact of high-risk situations by employing sounder design procedures.

About the Authors

Adnan Ibrahimbegovic is a full Professor at the Université Technologie Compiègne in France. He conducts interdisciplinary research within the Sorbonne Universités group, and holds a research Chair with Institut Universitaire de France, and was formerly head of teaching and research in the civil engineering CE Department at Ecole Normale Supérieure ENS-Cachan. He is a Fellow of the International Association for Computational Mechanics.

Naida Ademovic is an Associate Professor in Civil (Structural) Engineering at the Faculty of Civil Engineering at the University of Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which she joined in 2001. She is also an Associate Professor at the Center of Interdisciplinary Studies, University of Sarajevo, at the new Masters program "Natural Disasters Risk Management in Western Balkan Countries".

Naida received her 5-year Diploma (Bachelor of Science) in Structural Engineering from the University of Sarajevo. She received a Master of Science degree in "Computational Engineering" from Rühr University in Bochum, Germany, in 2004, and a second Masters degree (Advanced Masters in Structural Analysis of Monuments and Historical Constructions-SAHC) from the University of Minho, Portugal and University of Padova, Italy, in 2011. The SAHC program she was involved in won an EU Prize for Cultural Heritage/Europa Nostra Award in 2017. Naida received her PhD in 2012 in the field of earthquake engineering and masonry structures at the University of Sarajevo.

She has co-authored two books and published over 70 peer-reviewed papers in reputed international journals and conferences.
