Introduction to the Theory of Shells centers on the foundations of shell theory, and to some of the important problems that can be tackled within the framework of shell theory. Organized into seven chapters, this book begins with an explanation of the elements of the theory of surfaces and the construction of a shell theory. Subsequent chapter describes a class of shells known as membrane shells, or membranes. Other chapters detail the bending of circular cylinders; shells of revolution; and axisymmetric vibrations of circular cylinders. This book will be useful as a text that represents a one-semester beginning for students with a reasonable (first course) background in elasticity theory.
