Noted for its practical, accessible approach to senior and graduate-level engineering mechanics, Plates and Shells: Theory and Analysis is a long-time bestselling text on the subjects of elasticity and stress analysis. Many new examples and applications are included to review and support key foundational concepts. Advanced methods are discussed and analyzed, accompanied by illustrations. Problems are carefully arranged from the basic to the more challenging level. Computer/numerical approaches (Finite Difference, Finite Element, MATLAB) are introduced, and MATLAB code for selected illustrative problems and a case study is included.
