"…highly recommended to libraries and specialists working in the areas of the strength and reliability of the shell and plate structures and fracture mechanics, as well as to engineering and science students."
APPLIED MECHANICS REVIEWS
This book features new boundary element formulations for the solution of bending problems in plates and shells. These are based on modified Reissner plate and two-dimensional plane stress governing equations, which are coupled due to the curvature of the shell.
Dual boundary element formulations for the analysis of crack problems in plates and shells and a multi-region boundary element formulation for modeling assembled plate-structures are also included.
The solutions presented by the author compare favourably with existing analytical, numerical and experimental results.
Contents: Introduction; Basic Concepts; The Boundary Element Method; Hypersingular Integral Equations; The Dual Boundary Element Method; Crack Growth Simulation; A Multi-Domain BEM Formulation for Assembled Plate-Structures; Conclusions and Future Work; References; Appendices.
