About this book
The main focus of the book is to convey modern techniques applied within the range of computational mechanics of beams, plates and shells. The topics of interest are wide ranging and include computational aspects of nonlinear theories of shells and beams including dynamics, advanced discretization methods for thin shells and membranes, shear-deformable shell finite elements for SMA composite devices, optimization and design of shells and membranes, fluid-structure interaction with thin-walled structures, contact mechanics with application to thin structures and edge effects in laminated shells.
