About these proceedings


This proceedings volume contains papers on the main topics reflecting the scientific programme of the symposium: hierarchical, refined mathematical and technical models of shells, plates, and beams; relation of 2D and 1D models to 3D linear, non-linear and physical models; junction problems. In particular, peculiarities of cusped shells, plates, and beams are emphasized and special attention is paid to junction, multibody and fluid-elastic shell (plate, beam) interaction problems and their applications.

The contributions are theoretical, practical, and numerical in character.

This volume is dedicated to Ilia Vekua on the centenary of his birth.
