Course Description

This course deals with the theory and design of thin shell structures, using the membrane and bending theories for of shells of revolution and translation, and their application to analysis of domes, hyperbolic, paraboloid, elliptic and cylindrical shells. The course also introduces the finite element method for plate bending.

Objectives

  • To enable the student analyse and design thin shell structures including domes, hyperbolic, paraboloid, elliptic and cylindrical shells
  • To enable the student formulate Finite Element Equations for solution of the structural response of plate bending problems
