Geometrically nonlinear analysis of shell structures using flat DKT shell elements
MetadataShow full item record
This report describes nonlinear analysis o t arbitrary thin shell structures subjected to static loads. The nonlinear analysis includes pre and post-buckling behavior for any degree ot nonlinearity due to large displacements and large rotations but small strains. The formulation includes some recent developments of piate and shell theories, automatic solution strategies for the nonlinear equations; all adapted for implementation in mini and micro-computers with virtual memory.
