CE 442: Theory of Plates and Shells

CE 442:  Theory of Plates and Shells


The bending theory of thin elastic plates with small deflections; application to rectangular circular and continuous plates; fundamental membrane and bending theories of shells; membrane stresses and deflections; approximate bending solution by variational, finite difference, and finite element methods.  In addition, influence surfaces, bending of anisotropic plates, thick plates, yield line theory and large deflection behaviour may be discussed
