Editorial Reviews


"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!"
Michael P.Paı¨doussis
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

Book Description

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.

Format: Hardcover
It is in my professional opinion that this book prepares the engineer/physicist and applied mathematician, to discuss and deal with the embedded non-linearity observed in fluid-structure systems. These systems are found in a wide range of applications from aerospace and industrial engineering to biomechanical engineering.
The text is well written in a concise and logical manner providing enough theoretical background along with experimental evidence to help understand the importance of nonlinear analysis in fluid-structure interaction.
It follows a logical progression from linear concepts/theory to nonlinear elasticity analysis prior to studying the vibration and nonlinear response of thin structures subjected to flowing fluid. It proves to be an excellent reference for a nonlinear analysis course (in nonlinear vibrations, fluid-structure analysis, nonlinear elasticity, etc...).
I highly recommend this book for anyone (graduate and undergraduate students, professors, R&D) who is interested in performing research in nonlinear fluid-structure interactions. I believe that this book will be used as a reference for nonlinear fluid-structure interaction problems for decades to come.
