The Nonlinear Theory of Elastic Shells: One Spatial Dimension presents the foundation for the nonlinear theory of thermoelastic shells undergoing large strains and large rotations. This book discusses several relatively simple equations for practical application.
Organized into six chapters, this book starts with an overview of the description of nonlinear elastic shell. This text then discusses the foundation of three-dimensional continuum mechanics that are relevant to the shell theory approach. Other chapters cover several topics, including birods, beamshells, and axishells that begins with a derivation of the equations of motion by a descent from the equations of balance of linear and rotational momentum of a three-dimensional material continuum. This book discusses as well the approach to deriving complete field equations for one- or two-dimensional continua from the integral equations of motion and thermodynamics of a three-dimensional continuum. The final chapter deals with the analysis of unishells.
This book is a valuable resource for physicists, mathematicians, and scientists.
