Owing to the necessity to save weight and material in the design of modern structures, thin-walled reinforced constructions have emerged as a dominant style. These light-weight structures, however, are more susceptible than their traditional counterparts to problems originating from large deflections, nonlinear vibrations, and structural instabilities, and therefore require a greater depth and breadth of analyses.
