Bibliography Note Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary The book brings together original contributions by leading authors, covering a wide spectrum of current research on plates and shells. The material included in that volume appears here for the first time and is bound to become a classic in the field. Papers cover aspects of non-linear response of plates and shells, buckling and vibrations, composite structures, material nonlinearitites, advanced numerical methods and non-standard constitutive models. Future directions of research emerge from that collection of papers as well as applied practical engineering techniques. This volume is suitable for researchers and professional engineers.
