"For anyone working with plates and shells, perusal of the book for even an hour or so guarantees that he / she will want to have it permanently on his / her bookshelf. This, indeed, is an excellent book!"
Journal of Fluids and Structures
"...this book is a very valuable contribution to nonlinear mechanics and I warmly recommend it to graduate students and university professors as well as to researchers and problems of shells and plates. I expect that this book will serve as an inspiration for future studies of nonlinear static and dynamic phenomena related to plates and shells." Mathematical Reviews
This book covers theoretical and experimental aspects of nonlinear vibrations and stability of shells and plates including recent progresses in nonlinear vibrations and stability, advanced problems of shells with fluid-structure interaction, and many practical concepts, diagrams, and numerical results, useful in design and in understanding complex phenomena such as dynamic instability, bifurcations, and chaos.
