The Little IDA

In Fundamentals of Structural Mechanics, Hjelmstad solves a "little" one-dimensional Boundary Value Problem (BVP) for linear-elasticity before moving on to the three-dimensional BVP, which is full of mathematical difficulties. Hjelmstad's reasoning is sound. "Some of these difficulties are of great importance, while others are simply a nuisance. Reducing the issue to its simplest case helps … Continue reading The Little IDA
