The authors illustrate the application of motion control to a wide spectrum of buildings through many examples. [Jerome Connor; Simon Laflamme, (Of Iowa State University)] -- This innovative volume provides a systematic treatment of the basic concepts and computational procedures for structural motion design and engineering for civil installations. Structural Motion Engineering. Bengaluru, … Please review prior to ordering, Broadens practitioners' understanding of structural motion control, the enabling technology for motion-based design, Provides readers the tools to satisfy requirements of modern, ultra-high strength materials that lack corresponding stiffness, where the motion requirements control the design, Equips engineers and designers to adapt to more-excitable, contemporary structures that experience more structural motion under service loading, Explains the severe design constraints attending structures such as micro-device and semiconductor manufacturing centers in which the environment must be virtually motion free, Illustrates motion-based energy absorption mechanisms as a cost-effective alternative over inelastic deformation to dissipate energy and control structural response, ebooks can be used on all reading devices, Institutional customers should get in touch with their account manager, Usually ready to be dispatched within 3 to 5 business days, if in stock, The final prices may differ from the prices shown due to specifics of VAT rules, online reader with highlighting and note-making option. The book is ideal for practicing engineers and graduate students. The TMD concept was first applied by Frahm in 1909 (Frahm, 1909) to reduce the rolling motion of ships as well as ship hull vibrations.
