FAU Distinguished Research Professor Authors New Bookby Cheryl Halle | Monday, Aug 28, 2017
Isaac Elishakoff, Ph.D., distinguished research professor in the department of ocean and mechanical engineering at Florida Atlantic University recently authored the book "Probabilistic Methods in the Theory of Structures, Strength of Materials, Random Vibrations, and Random Buckling.” The book is a third, corrected and expanded edition that appears in conjunction with its companion volume Probabilistic Methods in the Theory of Structures: Complete Worked-Through Solutions.
According to the World Scientific Publishing Co. the main idea of the book lies in the fact that three topics: probabilistic strength of materials, random vibrations, and probabilistic buckling are presented in a single package allowing one to see the forest in between the trees. Indeed, these three topics usually are presented in separate manners, in different specialized books. Here, the reader gets a feeling of true unity of the subject at large in order to appreciate that in the end what one wants is reliability of the structure, in conjunction with its operating conditions.
