The studies briefly described stem from continuing investigations of plates and shells under external loading and elevated temperatures, and include problems of special interest to designers of missiles and aircraft. Chapter I discusses the post-buckling large-deflection theory of noncircular oval cylindrical shells under axial compression. Chapter II describes work on the analysis of the effects of concentrated loads applied to reinforcing frames of finite and infinitely long circular cylindrical shells. Chapter III presents the results of investigations of the effects of creep in structures, with particular emphasis on the bending of uniform and variable thickness circular plates and the effects of concentrated loads.
