This monograph is devoted to the investigation of nonlinear dynamics of plates and shells embedded in a temperature field. Numerical approaches and rigorous mathematical proofs of solution existence in certain classes of differential equations with various dimensions are applied. Both closed shell-type constructions and sectorial shells are studied. The considered problems are approximated by 2D and 3D constructions taking into account various types of nonlinearities (geometrical and/or physical with coupled deformation and temperature fields), and are subjected to an action of stationary and non-stationary thermal loads. Variational and finite difference numerical approaches are used to study numerous problems important for civil and mechanical engineering. Furthermore, a novel and exact computational method to solve large systems of linear algebraic equations especially suitable for computational speed and memory storage of a computer is proposed. This book is expected to be useful for researchers, engineers and students dealing with thermal and dynamical problems of stability and strength of shell-type constructions.
Synopsis
This monograph is devoted to nonlinear dynamics of thin plates and shells with thermosensitive excitation. Because of the variety of sizes and types of mathematical models in current use, there is no prospect of solving them analytically. However, the book emphasizes a rigorous mathematical treatment of the obtained differential equations, since it helps efficiently in further developing of various suitable numerical algorithms to solve the stated problems.
Synopsis
The present monograph is devoted to nonlinear dynamics of thin plates and shells with termosensitive excitation. Since the investigated mathematical models are of di?erent sizes (two- and three-dimensional di?erential equation) and di?erent types (di?erential equations of hyperbolic and parabolic types with respect to spatial co- dinates), there is no hope to solve them analytically. On the other hand, the proposed mathematical models and the proposed methods of their solutions allow to achieve more accurate approximation to the real processes exhibited by dynamics of shell (plate) - type structures with thermosensitive excitation. Furthermore, in this mo- graph an emphasis is put into a rigorous mathematical treatment of the obtained di?erential equations, since it helps e?ciently in further developing of various su- able numerical algorithms to solve the stated problems. It is well known that designing and constructing high technology electronic - vices, industrial facilities, ?ying objects, embedded into a temperature ?eld is of particular importance. Engineers working in various industrial branches, and part- ularly in civil, electronic and electrotechnic engineering are focused on a study of stress-strain states of plates and shells with various (sometimes hybrid types) da- ing along their contour, with both mechanical and temperature excitations, with a simultaneous account of heat sources in?uence and various temperature con- tions. Very often heat processes decide on stability and durability of the mentioned objects. Since numerous empirical measurement of heat processes are rather - pensive, therefore the advanced precise and economical numerical approaches are highly required.
