Thermal Stress Analysis of Beams, Plates and Shells presents classic and advanced thermal stress topics in a cutting edge review of this critical area. Tackling subjects with little coverage in existing resources, the book considers complex problems, such as multi-layered cases, using modern advanced computational and vibrational methods. Authors Carrera and Fazzolari begin with a review of the fundamentals of thermoelasticity and thermal stress analysis relating to advanced structures and the basic mechanics of beams, plates and shells, making the book a self-contained reference. They move on to consider more challenging topics, including: multilayered, anisotropic thermal stress structures; static and dynamic responses of coupled and uncoupled thermoelastic problems; thermal buckling and post-buckling behavior of thermally loaded structures; thermal effects on panel flutter phenomena; static and dynamic thermal stress analysis of functionally graded material (FGM) structures. With practical advice on advanced computational methods, and sample problems throughout that cover both metallic and composite structures and account for mesh and meshless methods, Thermal Stress Analysis of Beams, Plates and Shells is a valuable resource for those working on thermal stress problems within mechanical, civil and aerospace engineering settings. It provides an overview of critical thermal stress theory relating to beams, plates and shells, from classical concepts to the latest advanced theories, including the author's unified formulation (UF) theory. It includes cutting-edge topics with little coverage in other references, such as thermal effects on panel flutter phenomena and thermal stress analysis of functionally graded material (FGM) structures. It covers metallic and composite structures, including a complete analysis of layered structures, and considers both mesh and meshless methods.
