Operations on tensors and their representations
In this chapter, the transformations of tensor representations between various bases are described; they are needed in the derivation of the shell FEs. Short introductions to the subject of operations on tensors and their representations are typically provided in books on continuum mechanics and on the FE method. A comprehensive introduction to vector and tensor algebra and analysis can be found, e.g., in [33, 34], where other references are also listed.
