Item description for The Finite Element Analysis of Shells: Fundamentals by Klaus-Jurgen Bathe...

Shell structures are found abundantly in engineering designs and are routinely analyzed with finite element methods. The objective of this book is to present, in a unified manner, modern finite element procedures for general shell analysis. The first chapters introduce the basic concepts for the analysis of shells, explain the mathematical preliminaries, and discuss the mathematical models of plates and shells including their asymptotic properties. The following chapters deal with finite element discretization methods for plates and shells. At the end of the book, applications of these methodsin modern engineering practice are described and an overview of nonlinear shell analysis isgiven.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Finite Element Analysis of Shells: Fundamentals?

A thought-provoking treatise  Sep 7, 2004
It is an understatement to call this book excellent! Development of robust and reliable computational techniques for shell analysis continues to be a most challenging task. The level of profundity offered by this book on this traditional topic is truly astounding. Mathematical analysis has been wonderfully intertwined with engineering judgement. The presentation is brief and compact with an emphasis on mathematical rigor.
finite element analysis of shells in depth  Dec 17, 2003
This is the first (and only) book I have come across which gives a deep and comprehensive analysis of finite element methods for shell structures. The authors take a mathematical approach to the problem, and do a very nice job. Traditionally, finite element procedures for shells have been formulated intuitively hence resulting in mixed success. Mathematical analyses of finite element formulations give a deeper and meaningful insight into the underlying mathematical theory and the reasons why some formulations perform much better than others. This deeper mathematical understanding in turn gives better insight into the physical behaviour of shells as limiting cases are approached (i.e thin shells etc.). Research in finite element analysis, including shells, is very much alive and still has a lot of potential. This book is very valuable for people who want to dig further into mathematical aspects of finite element formulations, and are not just content with "coding" an existing formulation. This is not a "recipe" book, but a book which teaches you how to come up with new, mathematically consistent and meaningful formulations.
Useless for most people  Oct 2, 2003
The book is probably good for researchers. It is however not suitable for beginners or practitioners.
An important reference for shell structure mechanics  Aug 27, 2003
This book clearly explains shell structure mechanics from a mathematical and practical perspective. As a practicing engineer and finite element user, I found it extremely useful and easy to understand. This is also an invaluable reference for graduate students in applied mechanics. I think it will be a classic reference in that field.
An excellent book on Shells  Aug 26, 2003
This is an excellent book for anybody interested in the analysis of shells. It uniquely presents the physical and mathematical aspects of shell behavior, and their finite element analysis. I believe this book is a MUST for researchers and practioners.
