Load carrying behavior of shells

    Does anyone has some literature or any idea about this topic?More precisely i would like to know about the local and global effects due to neative and positive curvature.Thanks!

    Can you be more specific? Have you looked at ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel code? Have you looked at Roark's? What kind of loading conditions are you looking at?

    Do you mean bending behavior of shells under loads?? what approach are you looking for? finite element analysis?

    I mean local and global effects of a single load for different types of shells.That is for shells with different Gaussian quadrature.The boundary conditions don't matter as in i set for example clamped bc's.I can see the local and global effects (displacement,stresses...) in ANSYS that I am working but i would like to have some literatureon this subject.Thanks and I hope I explained it better this time.

    I spoke to some friends for a recommendation of a book, but they didn't give know. Anyway, when i'm looking for a book on an specific subject i usually just check in amazon and look for what it seems like genuine reviews. I looked your topic and i saw a FEA and Shells behaviour, maybe you should check that book. Good luck.

    Thanks very much for the book!
