Plate and Shell Structures : Selected Analytical and Finite Element Solutions Hardback
Plate and Shell Structures: Selected Analytical and Finite Element Solutions Maria Radwanska, Anna Stankiewicz, Adam Wosatko, Jerzy Pamin Cracow University of Technology, Poland Comprehensively covers the fundamental theory and analytical and numerical solutions for different types of plate and shell structures Plate and Shell Structures: Selected Analytical and Finite Element Solutions not only provides the theoretical formulation of fundamental problems of mechanics of plates and shells, but also several examples of analytical and numerical solutions for different types of shell structures.
The book contains advanced aspects related to stability analysis and a brief description of modern finite element formulations for plates and shells, including the discussion of mixed/hybrid models and locking phenomena.
Key features: *52 example problems solved and illustrated by more than 200 figures, including 30 plots of finite element simulation results. * Contents based on many years of research and teaching the mechanics of plates and shells to students of civil engineering and professional engineers. * Provides the basis of an intermediate-level course on computational mechanics of shell structures.
The book is essential reading for engineering students, university teachers, practitioners and researchers interested in the mechanics of plates and shells, as well as developers testing new simulation software.
