About this book


The book presents mathematical and mechanical aspects of the theory of plates and shells, applications in civil, aero-space and mechanical engineering, as well in other areas. The focus relates to the following problems:
• comprehensive review of the most popular theories of plates and shells,
• relations between three-dimensional theories and two-dimensional ones,
• presentation of recently developed new refined plates and shells theories (for example, the micropolar theory or gradient-type theories),
• modeling of coupled effects in shells and plates related to electromagnetic and temperature fields, phase transitions, diffusion, etc.,
• applications in modeling of non-classical objects like, for example, nanostructures,
• presentation of actual numerical tools based on the finite element approach.
