This book describes the application of artificial neural networks to structural mechanics. The contents of the book include:

  • an introduction to artificial neural networks
  • a review of the application of neural networks to various problems in structural mechanics
  • training neural networks sequentially and in parallel
  • the use of neural networks in adaptive mesh generation
  • the use of supervised and unsupervised neural networks for mesh partitioning
The book will be of interest to engineers, computer scientists and mathematicians working on the application of neural computing to structural mechanics and in particular finite element problems.

The C source code for the main procedures described in the book are available from the authors' webpage.
