This edition includes:
A chapter dedicated to the theory and analysis of laminated shells
Discussions addressing smart structures and functionally graded materials
Reorganization of chapters that improves and clarifies presentation
Additional exercises and examples
A timelessly valuable resource, this book approaches the subject primarily in terms of the finite element method. It provides incomparably full, self-contained coverage of the theories, analytical solutions, and linear and nonlinear finite element models of plate and shell laminated composite structures.
