Publisher’s description: Elastic structures, conceived as slender bodies able to transmit loads, have been studied intensely since the seventeenth century. Theories of elastic structures are useful in many civil and mechanical engineering applications. This book offers a critically filtered collection of the most significant theories dealing with elastic slender bodies and mathematical models that have been developed over time. It also shows how these models are used to solve practical problems involving elastic structures, particularly nonlinear problems. Chapters progress from simpler to more complicated structures, including rods, strings, membranes, plates, and shells.
