SHELL THEORY FROM THE STANDPOINT OF FINITE ELASTICITY
This is an account of the nonlinear theory of thin shells from the standpoint of finite elasticity, together with a brief summary of some related recent researches on the subject. The development of the basic theory, as well as a discussion of constitutive equations for elastic shells, are presented via a direct approach on the basis of a continuum model known as a Cosserat surface rather than from the three-dimensional equations of nonlinear elasticity.
