Since structural instability may lead to catastrophic failure of engineering structures, stability requirements must be satisfied besides requirements related to material failure. Knowledge on stability is of great importance in the areas of Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Aerospace Engineering; and all these disciplines have their own literature related to the subject. This book is intended to present state-of-the art in the stability analysis and to bring a number of researches together exposing the advances in the field. It consists of original and innovative research studies exhibiting various investigation directions.
