Simply because plates and shells are universal structural parts in aerospace, automobile, and civil engineering buildings, engineers needs to comprehend the habit of such constructions in the course of the examine of idea and research. Compiling this knowledge right into a unmarried quantity, conception and research of Elastic Plates and Shells, moment version offers a whole, up to date, and unified therapy of classical and shear deformation plates and shells, from the elemental derivation of theories to analytical and numerical solutions.
Revised and up-to-date, this moment version contains new info in such a lot chapters, in addition to a few rearrangement of issues to enhance the readability of the final presentation. The ebook offers new fabric at the conception and research of shells, that includes an extra bankruptcy dedicated to the subject. the writer additionally comprises new sections that deal with Castigliano's theorems, axisymmetric buckling of round plates, the relationships among the strategies of classical and shear deformation theories, and the nonlinear finite point research of plates. The booklet presents many illustrations of theories, formulations, and answer equipment, leading to an easy-to-understand presentation of the topics.
Like the former version, this e-book is still an appropriate textbook for a direction on plates and shells in aerospace, civil, and mechanical engineering curricula and maintains to function a reference for commercial and educational structural engineers and scientists.
