"Materials with Rheological Properties" presents the evolution of the mathematical models used to calculate the resistance structures and the conditions which enable progress to be made in this field. The author presents equations describing the behaviour of each possible type of resistance structure (with discrete collaboration, continuous collaboration and complex composition). These equations are then redefined in the particular concrete form for each type of structure, by using the notions and known parameters from the construction's statics. The mathematical models are then tested using practical case studies.
Constantin Cristescu is head of the art works department of the Institute of Railway Studies and Research (Bucharest, Romania) and is Associate Professor at the Technical University of Bucharest. He is also the author and co-author of many articles and standard works in the areas of calculating resistance structures and the implementation of engineering works.
