Uniqueness for the solutions of elastic thin plates and shallow shells as well as their contact problem with half space

  • Fan Jiashen


The uniqueness for the solutions mentioned in the subject is proved by using the uniqueness of the solution for the internal boundary problem of Laplace and bi-Laplace equations of the first kind as well as of the second.

Key words

harmonic and bi-harmonic functions uniqueness of solution elastic plates and shallow shells contact problem with the elastic half space
