9780849384158: Theory and Analysis of Elastic Plates and Shells, Second Edition (Series in Systems and Control)

Because plates and shells are common structural elements in aerospace, automotive, and civil engineering structures, engineers must understand the behavior of such structures through the study of theory and analysis. Compiling this information into a single volume, Theory and Analysis of Elastic Plates and Shells, Second Edition presents a complete, up-to-date, and unified treatment of classical and shear deformation plates and shells, from the basic derivation of theories to analytical and numerical solutions.

Revised and updated, this second edition incorporates new information in most chapters, along with some rearrangement of topics to improve the clarity of the overall presentation. The book presents new material on the theory and analysis of shells, featuring an additional chapter devoted to the topic. The author also includes new sections that address Castigliano's theorems, axisymmetric buckling of circular plates, the relationships between the solutions of classical and shear deformation theories, and the nonlinear finite element analysis of plates. The book provides many illustrations of theories, formulations, and solution methods, resulting in an easy-to-understand presentation of the topics.

Like the previous edition, this book remains a suitable textbook for a course on plates and shells in aerospace, civil, and mechanical engineering curricula and continues to serve as a reference for industrial and academic structural engineers and scientists.

About the Author:

Dr Reddy is a Distinguished Professor and inaugural holder of the Oscar S. Wyatt Endowed Chair in Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas. Dr Reddy has been a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the University of Texas at Austin, a Research Scientist for Lockheed Missiles and Space Company, and Professor of Engineering at the University of Oklahoma from 1975 to 1980, at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University from 1980 to 1992, and now at Texas A&M University since 1992. Dr Reddy is the author of more than 300 journal papers and 14 textbooks on theoretical formulations and finite-element analysis of problems in solid and structural mechanics (plates and shells), composite materials, computational fluid dynamics, numerical heat transfer, and applied mathematics. He is the first recipient of the University of Oklahoma College of Engineering's Award for Outstanding Faculty Achievement in Research, the 1984 Walter L. Huber Civil Engineering Research Prize of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the 1985 Alumni Research Award at Virginia Polytechnic Institute, and the 1992 Worcester Reed Warner Medal and 1995 Charles Russ Richards Memorial Award of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). Dr Reddy is a Fellow of the American Academy of Mechanics (AAM), the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the ASME, the American Society of Composites (ASC), the International Association of Computational Mechanics (IACM), the U.S. Association of Computational Mechanics (USACM), the Aeronautical Society of India (ASI), and the American Society of Composite Materials. Dr Reddy serves on the editorial boards of about two-dozen journals, including Journal of Non-Linear Mechanics (ASME), International Journal for Numerical Methods in Engineering, and International Journal for Numerical Methods in Fluids. He is the Editor-in-Chief of Mechanics of Advanced Materials and Structures and serves as one of the chief editors of Internatio

Review:

Praise for the previous edition
"This new book by J.N. Reddy digests more than two decades of research by him in plate theories (specially for thick plates and laminated composites), variational methods, and finite elements into an excellent textbook, which can be used very well by beginning or advanced graduate students, or by many engineers who deal with aerospace, automotive, and civil engineering structures. That is, the material is presented carefully and reasonably thoroughly in language that is easy to follow. This is the best textbook that this reviewer has seen for understanding the most important aspects of plate theory, and containing modern, important aspects of plate theory, which Timoshenko hardly could touch upon at all (in some cases they were not yet recognized topics), especially thick plates, laminated composites, and finite elements. And yet Reddy's book accomplishes good, useful introductions to all these topics in a mere 540 pages. Theory and Analysis of Elastic Plates is a textbook that clarifies the important aspects of plate theory, emphasizing its most important modern ones. For this purpose it is the best book available, in this reviewer's experience. As such it belongs on the bookshelves of every technical library, and every graduate student or engineer seriously interested in plates, and should become a widely used textbook in graduate-level courses."
―Arthur W. Leissa, Ohio State University, Applied Mechanics Reviews
