Course description

Learning outcomes
1. Understanding of the role of the three-dimensional elasticity theory in (bar, beam, membrane,) plate and shell models in analyzing the mechanics of structures
2. Understanding of the energy and equilibrium approaches in deriving and formulating (bar, beam, membrane,) plate and shell models
3. Ability to derive the (beam and) plate models of statics and free vibrations within the theory of elasticity
4. Ability to apply plate and shell models to various types of structural analyses and to solve the corresponding partial differential equations by the most relevant analytical solution methods
