The use of composite materials in engineering structures continues to increase dramatically, and there have been equally significant advances in modeling for general and composite materials and structures in particular. To reflect these developments, renowned author, educator, and researcher J.N. Reddy created an enhanced second edition of his standard-setting Mechanics of Laminated Composite Plates and Shells: Theory and Analysis. This edition includes: A chapter dedicated to the theory and analysis of laminated shells Discussions addressing smart structures and functionally graded materials Reorganization of chapters that improves and clarifies presentation Additional exercises and examples A timelessly valuable resource, this book approaches the subject primarily in terms of the finite element method. It provides incomparably full, self-contained coverage of the theories, analytical solutions, and linear and nonlinear finite element models of plate and shell laminated composite structures.

Because plates and shells are common structural elements in aerospace, automotive, and civil engineering structures, engineers must understand the behavior of such structures through the study of theory and analysis. Compiling this information into a single volume, Theory and Analysis of Elastic Plates and Shells, Second Edition presents a complete, up-to-date, and unified treatment of classical and shear deformation plates and shells, from the basic derivation of theories to analytical and numerical solutions. Revised and updated, this second edition incorporates new information in most chapters, along with some rearrangement of topics to improve the clarity of the overall presentation. The book presents new material on the theory and analysis of shells, featuring an additional chapter devoted to the topic. The author also includes new sections that address Castigliano's theorems, axisymmetric buckling of circular plates, the relationships between the solutions of classical and shear deformation theories, and the nonlinear finite element analysis of plates. The book provides many illustrations of theories, formulations, and solution methods, resulting in an easy-to-understand presentation of the topics. Like the previous edition, this book remains a suitable textbook for a course on plates and shells in aerospace, civil, and mechanical engineering curricula and continues to serve as a reference for industrial and academic structural engineers and scientists.

This book presents the most recent advances on the mechanics of soft and composite shells and their nonlinear vibrations and stability, including advanced problems of modeling human vessels (aorta) with fluid-structure interaction. It guides the reader into nonlinear modelling of shell structures in applications where advanced composite and complex biological materials must be described with great accuracy. To achieve this goal, the book presents nonlinear shell theories, nonlinear vibrations, buckling, composite and functionally graded materials, hyperelasticity, viscoelasticity, nonlinear damping, rubber and soft biological materials. Advanced nonlinear shell theories, not available in any other book, are fully derived in a simple notation and are ready to be implemented in numerical codes. The work features a blend of the most advanced theory and experimental results, and is a valuable resource for researchers, professionals and graduate students, especially those interested in mechanics, aeronautics, civil structures, materials, bioengineering and solid matter at different scales.

Das gut eingeführte Werk Ebene Flächentragwerke erscheint nun in der 2. Auflage. Ausgehend von einer Klassifikation der Modelle ebener Flächentragwerke und den Grundgleichungen der linearen Elastizitätstheorie werden zunächst systematisch die Gleichungen für isotrope Scheiben und Platten abgeleitet. Dabei wird ein didaktisch einheitliches Konzept eingesetzt. Die Gleichungen werden in kartesischen Koordinaten, Polarkoordinaten und schiefwinkligen Koordinaten formuliert. In Ergänzung der ersten Auflage wird auch eine Plattentheorie in koordinatenfreier Schreibweise behandelt, so dass der Leser einen leichteren Zugang zu modernen Konzepten der Formulierung von Flächentragwerkstheorien erhält. Die Diskussion der Plattenmodelle nach Kirchhoff, Mindlin und von Kármán zeigt die Möglichkeiten und Grenzen dieser Strukturmodelle. Für schubstarre und schubelastische Platten mit kleinen Durchbiegungen wird auch anisotropes Materialverhalten einbezogen, und es werden die Strukturgleichungen der klassischen Laminattheorie und der Schubdeformationstheorie erster Ordnung angegeben. Es folgt ein kurzer Einblick in Theorien zur Analyse dreischichtiger Platten. Die Berücksichtigung vorgegebener Temperaturfelder erfolgt für alle Plattenmodelle im Rahmen der entkoppelten Thermoelastizität. Der Leser erhält einen umfassenden Überblick über die Anwendung bedeutsamer Strukturmodelle ebener Flächentragwerke. Die nach Aufgabenklassen geordneten zahlreichen Beispiele können als Referenzlösungen zur Testung numerischer Verfahren genutzt werden. Die Aufnahme der sogenannten Reduktionsverfahren von Wlassow und Kantorowitsch soll ihre Leistungsfähigkeit für die Ableitung einfacher und analytischer Näherungslösungen durch die Reduktion der Strukturgleichungen auf eindimensionale Formulierungen verdeutlichen.
