RE: shell stability

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I’ll second that.  Although, my professor was a real thin-shell concrete guru, and he usually spent a pretty good portion of each class period correcting all the typographical errors in the book.  Without someone to help you through that, referring to the book might be at least confusing and possibly dangerous.

Steve,

 

I don't know if this reference meets your ideas of practical, but I used

David P. Billington's book Thin Shell Concrete Structures in Grad

school and really liked it.  I thought that the book gave me the theory

and then reduced the concepts to the more practical.

 

The fifth chapter is on the Analysis of Circular Cylindrical Shells, and

5-5 is on the Solution of The Shallow-Shell Equations.

 

I hope that helps.

 

Take Care,

Lloyd Pack
