Objectives Knowledge of the structural theories for plates and shells. Capability of building analytical solutions for plates and shells by approximate methods. Knowledge of the Euler theory of instability for plates. Capability of computing the Euler critical load for plates.
Programme Plates
Kinematic model. Compatibility equations. Bending problem. In-plane problem. Equilibrium equations via principle of virtual works. Constitutive equations for linearly-elastic and isotropic material. Approximate analytical solutions for static loads. Applications of structural interest: decks and planar roofs.

Shells
Kinematic model. Compatibility equations. Constitutive equations for linearly-elastic and isotropic material. Membrane theory and equilibrium equations. Analytical solutions for static loads. Corrections to membrane theory. Applications of structural interest: domes, spherical, cylindrical and conical shells.
