NEW APPROACH TO THE ANALYSIS OF SHELLS, PLATES AND MEMBRANES WITH FINITE DEFLECTIONS

This paper presents a new perturbation method of analysis applicable to a class of geometrically non-linear problems of shells, plates, and membranes with translationally restrained edges. The perturbation parameter is a linear function of Poisson's ratio. The convergence of successive perturbations (i.e., approximations) is independent of the magnitudes of deflections. Several solutions and results are obtained for the purposes of illustration and discussion. Whenever possible, calculated values are compared with results obtained by other means.
