This treatise on the stability of engineering structures and components under conservative and non-conservative loading emphasizes important non-linear features of the behavior from the viewpoint of catastrophe phenomena. Part One examines the basis of structural dynamics, and Part Two considers the buckling and post-buckling of structures under gravity loading, and relates the engineering approach to the new catastrophe theory of Thom and Zeeman.
