Abstract:

A system of basic equations of the linear banding theory of thin elastic shells, derived under the Kirchhoff-Love hypothesis, is employed which involves only symmetric shell-strain measures and symmetric stress and couple resultants. The basic equations are rigorously reduced to a general system of forth order complex partial differential equations in terms of a symmetric second order complex tensor and its conjugate. The results appear to be attractive from the point of view of application to special problems. Author
