Plate and shell problems
We have so far discussed different theoretical aspects of the nonlinear analysis of axisymmetric thin shells, Sec. 4.7, presenting also details of the numerically oriented approach in the finite element context, Sec. 4.8. The first two sections of the present chapter are intended as the demonstration of the power of the presented approach as applied to different axisymmetric plate and shell problems. This is followed by a stability analysis of some spatial prismatic plate assemblies.
