By Phillip L. Gould (auth.)

The research ofthree-dimensional continua has been a standard a part of graduate schooling in good mechanics for it slow. With rational simplifications to the 3-dimensional conception of elasticity, the engineering theories of medium-thin plates and of skinny shells will be derived and utilized to a wide category of engi­ neering constructions distinct via a commonly small measurement in a single course. usually, those theories are constructed a little bit independently as a result of their designated geometrical and load-resistance features. nonetheless, the 2 platforms proportion a standard foundation and may be unified lower than the type of floor constructions after the German time period Fliichentragwerke. This universal foundation is absolutely exploited during this publication. a considerable section of many conventional ways to this topic has been dedicated to developing classical and approximate recommendations to the governing equations of the process for you to continue with functions. in the context of analytical, instead of numerical, techniques, the restricted common­ ity of many such ideas has been a powerful quandary to purposes regarding advanced geometry, fabric homes, and/or loading. it truly is now quite regimen to acquire computer-based ideas to rather complex occasions. although, the alternative of the right kind challenge to unravel during the number of the mathematical version is still a human instead of a computing device activity and calls for a foundation within the conception of the subject.
