Simply because plates and shells are universal structural components in aerospace, car, and civil engineering buildings, engineers needs to comprehend the habit of such constructions throughout the research of conception and research. Compiling this knowledge right into a unmarried quantity, idea and research of Elastic Plates and Shells, moment version offers an entire, up to date, and unified remedy of classical and shear deformation plates and shells, from the fundamental derivation of theories to analytical and numerical solutions.
Revised and up to date, this moment version accommodates new details in such a lot chapters, besides a few rearrangement of themes to enhance the readability of the final presentation. The ebook offers new fabric at the concept and research of shells, that includes an extra bankruptcy dedicated to the subject. the writer additionally comprises new sections that tackle Castigliano's theorems, axisymmetric buckling of round plates, the relationships among the suggestions of classical and shear deformation theories, and the nonlinear finite point research of plates. The booklet presents many illustrations of theories, formulations, and resolution equipment, leading to an easy-to-understand presentation of the topics.
Like the former variation, this ebook continues to be an appropriate textbook for a path on plates and shells in aerospace, civil, and mechanical engineering curricula and keeps to function a reference for commercial and educational structural engineers and scientists.
