Nonlinear geometric and material analysis of prestressed concrete general shell structures. (English) Zbl 0773.73090

In a previous paper [see the foregoing entry], a general formulation was presented for the nonlinear material and geometric, instantaneous and long-term nonlinear analysis of prestressed concrete structures. In the present paper the application of this formulation to the nonlinear analysis of prestressed concrete shells of general geometry is discussed. Special concern is devoted to the definition of the space curved shell and tendon geometries, which potentially require large amounts of data preparation.
