Analysis of Plates and Shells / Phillip L. Gould.

By: Gould, Phillip LMaterial type: TextTextPublication details: Upper Saddle River, N.J. : Prentice Hall, c1999. ISBN: 0133749509Subject(s): Shells (Engineering) | Plates (Engineering)DDC classification: 624.1776 LOC classification: TA660.S5
Contents:
Ch. 1. Introduction -- Ch. 2. Geometry -- Ch. 3. Equilibrium -- Ch. 4. Membrane Theory: Applications to Symmetrically Loaded Shells of Revolution -- Ch. 5. Membrane Theory: Applications to Nonsymmetrically Loaded Shells of Revolution -- Ch. 6. Membrane Theory: Applications to Shells of Translation -- Ch. 7. Deformations -- Ch. 8. Constitutive Laws, Boundary Conditions, and Displacements -- Ch. 9. Energy and Approximate Methods -- Ch. 10. Bending of Plates: Displacement Formulation -- Ch. 11. Bending and Stability of Plates -- Ch. 12. Shell Bending: Applications to Circular Cylindrical Shells -- Ch. 13. Bending Theory and Stability of Shells -- Ch. 14. Conclusion.
Summary: This book presents a unified development of the mechanics of shells and plates with emphasis on the fundamental engineering aspects. Initially, the geometrical relationships are presented in a somewhat general form appropriate for both plates and shells. Following the geometric description of the surface and the consideration of the equilibrium, we introduce a first logical simplification, the membrane theory of shells. After a further theoretical exposition of linear deformations, constitutive relationships, and energy principles, we present the flexural theory of plates and the bending theory of shells, including elastic stability. While this sequence postpones the introduction of the complete theory of plates until much of the theory of shells is covered, it is logical, consistent and efficient.
