Finite Element Analysis for Civil Engineering with DIANA Software (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


This book systematically introduces readers to the finite element analysis software DIANA (DIsplacement ANAlyzer) and its applications in civil engineering. Developed by TNO Corporation in the 1970s, DIANA is frequently used in civil engineering and engineering mechanics.

Unlike the software user's manual, which provides a comprehensive introduction and theoretical analysis, this book presents a simplified overview of the basic background theory to help beginners master the software quickly. It also discusses GUI operation and the command console in Python language, and includes examples involving classical modeling operations to help readers review each section.

Both the book and DIANA itself are valuable resources for students and researchers in all the structural engineering fields, such as civil engineering, bridge engineering, geotechnical engineering, tunnel engineering, underground structural engineering, irrigation, municipal engineering and fire engineering.

Mr. Shun Chai is currently a PhD candidate at Department of Civil Engineering in Southeast University, Nanjing, China. His research field is mainly focused on evaluation of structural state, including the long-term evaluation of precast segmental bridges, resilient design of bridges, stochastic finite element method of polynomial chaos extension on structural reliability research as well as the current UHPC research. Dr. Chai participated in many experiments, including long-term performance experiment and the flexural research of precast segmental concrete (PCS) bridges . During the process of researching stochastic finite element method, he has gained vast expertise as well as rich experience in DIANA version 9.4, 10.1 and 10.2 software. In 2018, his book Finite Element Analysis of Diana 10.1 on Civil Engineering was published by Nanjing University Press in Chinese language (ISBN: 978-7-305-20282-7).
