Classical and Advanced Theories of Thin Structures Mechanical and Mathematical Aspects /

The book presents an updated state-of-the-art overview of the general aspects and practical applications of the theories of thin structures, through the interaction of several topics, ranging from non-linear thin-films, shells, junctions, beams of different materials and in different contexts (elast...
