About this book


This monograph is devoted to the investigation of nonlinear dynamics of plates and shells embedded in a temperature field. Numerical approaches and rigorous mathematical proofs of solution existence in certain classes of differential equations with various dimensions are applied. Both closed shell-type constructions and sectorial shells are studied.

The considered problems are approximated by 2D and 3D constructions taking into account various types of nonlinearities (geometrical and/or physical with coupled deformation and temperature fields), and are subjected to an action of stationary and non-stationary thermal loads.

Variational and finite difference numerical approaches are used to study numerous problems important for civil and mechanical engineering.

Furthermore, a novel and exact computational method to solve large systems of linear algebraic equations especially suitable for computational speed and memory storage of a computer is proposed.

This book is expected to be useful for researchers, engineers and students dealing with thermal and dynamical problems of stability and strength of shell-type constructions.
