This book is intended primarily for graduate students, researchers, and analysts interested in modeling and understanding the complex behavior of thin-walled structures undergoing large displacements using the finite element method. The subject matter of the book entails the nonlinear static and dynamic analysis as well as the stability analysis (both static and dynamic) of thin-walled plates and shells. The discussions in the text are limited to presenting nonlinearities due to large displacements that result in small strains. As such, a discussion on material nonlinearities is not included. Since most problems involving thin-walled...
