This unique book explores both theoretical and experimental aspects of nonlinear vibrations and stability of shells and plates. It is ideal for researchers, professionals, students, and instructors. Expert researchers will find the most recent progresses in nonlinear vibrations and stability of shells and plates, including advanced problems of shells with fluid-structure interaction. Professionals will find many practical concepts, diagrams, and numerical results, useful for the design of shells and plates made of traditional and advanced materials. They will be able to understand complex phenomena such as dynamic instability, bifurcations, and chaos, without needing an extensive mathematical background. Graduate students will find (i) a complete text on nonlinear mechanics of shells and plates, collecting almost all the available theories in a simple form, (ii) an introduction to nonlinear dynamics, and (iii) the state of art on the nonlinear vibrations and stability of shells and plates, including fluid-structure interaction problems.

Author Biography - Marco Amabili
Marco Amabili is a professor and Director of the Laboratories in the Department of Industrial Engineering at the University of Parma. His main research is in vibrations of thin-walled structures and fluid-structure interaction. Professor Amabili is the winner of numerous awards in Italy and around the world including the 'Bourse quebecoise d'excellence' from the Ministry of Education of Quebec in 1999. He is Associate Editor of the Journal of Fluids and Structures, a member of the editorial board of Journal of Sound and Vibration, and editor of a special issue of the Journal of Computers and Structures. He is a co-organizer of 14 conferences or symposia, the Secretary of the ASME Technical Committee on Dynamics and Control of Structures and Systems (AMD Division), and a member of the ASME Technical Committees Vibration and Sound (DE Division) and Fluid-Structure Interaction (PVP Division). Professor Amabili is the author of more than 180 papers on vibrations and dynamics.
