Abstract
Despite a widely-held belief that the finite element method is the method for the solution of solid mechanics problems, which has for 30 years dissuaded solid mechanics scientists from paying any attention to the finite volume method, it is argued that finite volume methods can be a viable alternative. It is shown that it is simple to understand and implement, strongly conservative, memory efficient, and directly applicable to nonlinear problems. A number of examples are presented and, when available, comparison with finite element methods is made, showing that finite volume methods can be not only equal to, but outperform finite element methods for many applications.

Abstract
In this paper we deal with stability problems of any complex structure that can be modeled by beam and shell finite elements. We use for illustration the steel plate girders, which are used in bridge construction, and in industrial halls or building construction. Long spans, slender cross sections exposed to heavy loads, are all critical design points engineers must take into account. Knowing the critical load that will cause lateral torsional buckling of the girder, or load that can lead to web buckling, as an important scenario to consider in a design process. Many of such problem, including lateral torsional buckling with influence of lateral supports and their spacing on critical load can be solved by the proposed method. An illustrative study of web buckling also includes effects of position and spacing of transverse and longitudinal web stiffeners, where stiffeners can be modelled optionally using shell or frame elements.

Abstract
In this paper we study the control for nonlinear geometric instability problem of a deep or a shallow truss or yet a frame structure. All the structural models are built with geometrically exact truss and beam finite elements. The proposed models can successfully handle large overall motion under static or dynamic conservative load. The control strategy considers adding a damping from either friction device or viscous damper. This kind of control belong to well-known concept of passivity. Different examples are presented in order to illustrate the proposed theoretical developments.

Key Words
instability; control; viscous damping; friction damping

Abstract
Transport is the central ingredient of all numerical schemes for hyperbolic partial differential equations and in particular for hydrodynamics. Transport has thus been extensively studied in many of its features and for numerous specific applications. In more than one dimension, it is most commonly plagued by a major artifact: mesh imprinting. Though mesh imprinting is generally inevitable, its anisotropy can be modulated and is thus amenable to significant reduction. In the present work we introduce a new definition of stencils by taking into account second nearest neighbors (across cell corners) and call the resulting strategy \"co-mesh approach\". The modified equation is used to study numerical dissipation and tune enlarged stencils in order to minimize transport anisotropy.

Key Words
transport; numerical diffusion; isotropy; mesh imprinting; modified equation

Abstract
This study is dedicated to the dynamic elasticity problem for a semi-strip. The semi-strip is loaded by the dynamic load at the center of its short edge. The conditions of fixing are given on the lateral sides of the semistrip. The initial problem is reduced to one-dimensional problem with the help of Laplace\'s and Fourier\'s integral transforms. The one-dimensional boundary problem is formulated as the vector boundary problem in the transform\'s domain. Its solution is constructed as the superposition of the general solution for the homogeneous vector equation and the partial solution for the inhomogeneous vector equation. The matrix differential calculation is used for the deriving of the general solution. The partial solution is constructed with the help of Green\'s matrix-function, which is searched as the bilinear expansion. The case of steady-state oscillations is considered. The problem is reduced to the solving of the singular integral equation. The orthogonalization method is applied for the calculations. The stress state of the semi-strip is investigated for the different values of the frequency.

Key Words
semi-strip; dynamic problem; steady-state oscillation; singular integral equation; Green matrix-function
