The problems specific for designs involving thin-walled structural members such as hollow beams, plates, membranes and shells are discussed. The emphasis is on the physical interpretations of the governing equations and on the numerical solution methods, including effective FE modeling and simulation. Stability, imperfection sensitivity, warping, and local effects are examined. Behaviour of thin-walled pressure vessels, containers, pipes, elements of aircraft and space stations, etc., are analyzed as the practicum.
