Vibration Analysis of Shells with Double Curvatures

Pp. 77-99 (23)

Meilan Liu and Cho W. S. To


Vibration characteristics of shell structures with double curvatures are studied in this chapter. These shell structures include the spherical caps, spherical panel of square projection, hemispherical panel, and hemispherical shell. The computed results are compared with available data in the literature whenever they are available.


Vibration analysis, spherical shells, caps, panel, hemispheres.
