Postcritical Deformations of Thin Anisotropic Shells
The purpose of this book is to extend the so-called “geometric method” to the local and global stability analysis of physically and geometrically nonlinear thin shells, subjected to static, dynamic, and combined loading. The results presented here should have a wide range of applications in engineering practices due to the widespread use of technologically new thin-walled structures, and the importance of necessary conditions for their stable performance.
