  • A framework for structural systems based on the principles of statistical mechanics 

    Andújar Moreno, Rabindranath; Roset Calzada, Jaime; Kilar, Vojko (2014-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    A framework is proposed in which certain well-known concepts of statistical mechanics and thermodynamics can be used and applied to characterize structural systems of interconnected Timoshenko beam elements. We first make ...
  • Assessing numerical error in structural dynamics using energy 

    Andújar Moreno, Rabindranath; Roset Calzada, Jaime; Kilar, Vojko (2013)
    Article
    Open Access
    This work applies the variational principles of Lagrange and Hamilton to the assessment of numerical methods of linear structural analysis. Different numerical methods are used to simulate the behaviour of three structural ...
