"...the authors make a new contribution to the theory of nonlinear shell equations...The clarity and the quite complete bibliography make this book very pleasant to read." Mathematical Reviews

Book Description

Elastic shells are pervasive in everyday life. Examples of these thin-walled structures range from automobile hoods to veins and arteries. This new edition explains shell theory, bringing all the material of the first edition entirely up to date, and adding two entirely new chapters on general shell theory and general membrane theory.Aerospace, mechanical, and civil engineers, and applied mathematicians, will find this book a clear, thorough reference on shell theory.Praise for the first edition:"a carefully written treatise...authored by two experts in the field who have themselves contributed significantly to the literature" J. Lyell Sanders, Jr., American Scientist
