A Last Paper: An Equivalent Plate Modeling of Corrugated Structures
23 May 2014 | Publications | Contributor(s): Wenbin Yu, Zheng Ye, Victor Berdichevsky
An equivalent classical plate model of corrugated structures is derived using the variational asymptotic method. Starting from a thin shell theory, we carry out an asymptotic analysis of the strain energy in terms of the smallness of a single corrugation with respect to the characteristic length...
