Thermal Stress Analysis of Beams, Plates and Shells
- Erasmo Carrera, Professor of Space Structures and Thermal Stresses, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Politecnico di Torino, Italy
- Fiorenzo Fazzolari, Researcher in Dynamics and Thermal Stress Analysis of Plates and Shells, City University London, UK
Thermal Stress Analysis of Beams, Plates and Shells presents classic and advanced thermal stress topics in a cutting-edge review of this critical area. Tackling subjects with little coverage in existing resources, the book considers complex problems, including multi-layered cases using modern advanced computational and vibrational methods.
Authors Carrera and Fazzolari begin with a review of the fundamentals of thermoelasticity and thermal stress analysis relating to advanced structures and the basic mechanics of beams, plates, and shells, making the book a self-contained reference.
The text then progresses to more challenging topics, including multilayered, anisotropic thermal stress structures, static and dynamic responses of coupled and uncoupled thermoelastic problems, thermal buckling and post-buckling behavior of thermally loaded structures, and thermal effects on panel flutter phenomena, amongst others.
