SS07: Design, Modelling and Analysis of Thin Shell Structures
Organiser: Prof. Krzysztof Magnucki, Poznan University of Technology, Poland
Summary: The purpose of this special session will be to share and exchange the latest knowledge concerning the design and analysis of thin shell structures. The session will cover analytical, numerical and experimental investigations. While the focus will be on stability problems of shells in both the critical and post-critical range, other related subjects will be equally welcome. Contributions are invited on the following topics: Analytical and numerical modelling of the pre-buckling state; Numerical simulations of post-buckling behaviour of shells; Control of buckling and post-buckling behaviour; New shell applications; Nonconventional shell forms.
