Finite Element Applications to Thin-Walled Structures by Dr J W Bull

This book presents a series of chapters describing contemporary developments in finite element applications to a number of thin-walled structures. Each chapter is written by an expert in their own field of research and is presented in a self-contained manner. The book can be conveniently divided into three parts. The first part gives an overview of the finite elements available for use with curved thin-walled structures and looks at the finite element method with the membrane theory of shells. The second part of the book examines the more intricate areas of thin-walled structures with cutouts and cracks. Vibrational, stability and non-linear analysis is also investigated. Attention is drawn to the lack of publications on finite element vibrational applications. The final part of the book looks at the application of finite elements to box beams, storage vessels pipes and shells, together with the effect of wind on tall structures. Finite Element Applications to Thin-Walled Structures will be of interest to research and consulting engineers in civil, structural and mechanical engineering and will also be of relevance to aeronautical and automotive engineers and naval architects.
