Membrane Analysis Of Shells Of Revolution
Published 1992 · Physics
In this chapter we will study the membrane behavior of shells of revolution with double curvature. The shell types analyzed in the present chapter are a subclass of shells of revolution having non-zero positive Gaussian curvature.Shells with non-zero Gaussian curvature have non-developable surfaces. Hence they are stronger, stiffer, and more stable than shells with zero Gaussian curvature.
