Modelling and Analysis of Circular Cylindrical Shells
In the previous Chaps. 7 and 8 we have considered beams and plates, i.e. one- and two-dimensional structural elements with straight axes and plane reference surfaces. Thin-walled laminated or sandwich shells can be also modelled as two-dimensional structural elements but with single or double curved reference surfaces. To cover shells of general shape a special book is necessary, because a general treatment of shells of any geometry demands a detailed application of differential geometry relations.
