Solution of elastic-plastic shallow shell problems by the boundary element method

  • Peng Xiaolin


The boundary integral equations for elasto-plastic problems of shallow shells are established by using the fundamental solutions of shallow shells derived previously. The strains and stress-resultants in the plastic region are used as unknown variables. The simultaneous nonlinear equations of these variables and unknown boundary values are established and solved by direct iteration method.
