Summary and Info
Shell structures are key components in a very wide range of engineering enterprises. The theory of layered shells of revolution under the quasistatic action of loading and temperature is the subject of this book. The shells treated here are in general of an asymmetric sandwich structure. A linear theory is developed which allows for a transition to shells with less layers, that is two-layered and homogeneous structures. The first half of the book is concerned with orthotropic elastic shells. In particular, it includes the membrane theory of cylindrical, spherical and conical shells, and the bending theory of cylindrical shells, storage tanks and pressure-vessels. In each of the numerical examples considered, an attempt is made to map different regimes of structural behaviour. The second half of the book is devoted to viscoelastic shells. First the time-invariant hereditary theory is presented, describing the response of viscoelastic materials. According to the correspondence principle of this theory the actual viscoelastic shell may be replaced by a conjugate elastic one
