State-of-the-art nonlinear computational analysis of shells, nonlinearities due to large deformations and nonlinear material behavior, alternative shell element formulations, algorithms and implementational aspects, composite and sandwich shells, local and global instabilities, optimization of shell structures and concepts of shape finding methods of free from shells. Furthermore, algorithms for the treatment of the nonlinear stability behavior of shell structures (including bifurcation and snap-through buckling) are presented in the book.
