This chapter is devoted to the study of very thin, tall structures. Such structures are called “tall” because one of their dimensions, the height, is much larger than the others and “thin” because the thickness of the material is much smaller than the characteristic dimensions of the cross section. Moreover, the material is periodically distributed along bars or layers. Examples of such structures are cranes and skyscrapers (see Figures 5.1–5.5).
