Texts on Computational Mechanics: Volume 5: Dynamics of Structures

This volume covers the computational dynamics of linear and non-linear engineering systems subject to conservative as well as non-conservative loads. Available in both paperback and hardback, the volume proposes an as simple as possible numerical evaluation of dynamic phenomena. Practically all known methods of linear spectral analysis like the Householder, Givens, Wiland, Lanczos, Jacobi, Guyan, Eberlein, etc., are clearly detailed with a critical appraisal of their advantages and disadvantages. A great number of flow diagrams and examples are given in order to facilitate the understanding and practical application. A technically experienced reader will no doubt appreciate the interpretative difficulties of a subject like random or stochastic vibration expounded in a special chapter. Non-model damping is also detailed and the highly topical direct integration methods of the equations of dynamic equilibrium receive a very broad description. Finally non-linear...

John Argyris

John Hadji Argyris (Greek: Ιωάννης Αργύρης; * 19 August 1913 in Volos, Greece; – 2 April 2004 in Stuttgart) was among the creators of the Finite Element Method (FEM) and lately Professor at the University of Stuttgart and Director of the Institute for Statics and Dynamics of Aerospace Structures.
His uncle Constantin Carathéodory was a Greek mathematician of the Modern Era.


John Argyris studied civil engineering in Athens and Munich and received his diploma in 1936. He was then employed at Gollnow company in Stettin, where he was involved among other things in high radio transmitter masts. He was imprisoned by the Nazi's for some time but with the help of Admiral Canaris he escaped to Switzerland where he continued his studies in ETH Zürich. In 1943 he joined the research department of the Royal Aeronautical Society in England. Starting from 1949 he was lecturer in aeronautical engineering at the Imperial College London of the University of London, where he assumed a chair in 1955. In 1959 Argyris was appointed a professor at the Technical University of Stuttgart (today University of Stuttgart) and created the Institut for statics and dynamics of aerospace structures.

Scientific work

Argyris was involved, and developed to a large extent the Finite Element Method along with Ray W. Clough and Olgierd Zienkiewicz after an early mathematical pre-working of Richard Courant.
