Abstract

Integral equations are derived for the representation of in-plane as well as transverse displacements of shallow shells undergoing small, quasi-static or dynamic deformations. A combined boundary/interior element method for static stress, free-vibration, and transient response analyses of shallow shells, based on these integral equations, is derived. Numerical results are presented to demonstrate not only the computational economy but also the superior accuracy realizable from the present approach, in contrast to the popular Galerkin finite element approach.
