Abstract:

The work reported on is part of a multidisciplinary effort aimed at the development of analytical and computational tools for the modeling and simulation of very flexible structures. This research is concerned with three main areas 1 Mathematical aspects, with special emphasis on nonlinear stability analysis 2 Modeling aspects, with emphasis in very flexible slender structures and 3 Numerical analysis aspects, with emphasis on methodologies suitable for large scale and accurate simulation. The present research effort has resulted in 36 publications, two conferences, and a strong collaboration in a related research effort also sponsored by AFOSR with groups at UC Berkeley and U. Maryland.
