Static analysis of shear-deformable shells of revolution via G.D.Q. method
Edoardo Artioli and Erasmo Viola

    This paper deals with a novel application of the Generalized Differential Quadrature (G.D.Q.) method to the linear elastic static analysis of isotropic rotational shells. The governing equations of equilibrium, in terms of stress resultants and couples, are those from Reissner-Mindlin shear deformation shell theory. These equations, written in terms of internal-resultants circular harmonic amplitudes, are first put into generalized displacements form, by use of the strain-displacements relationships and the constitutive equations. The resulting systems are solved by means of the G.D.Q. technique with favourable precision, leading to accurate stress patterns.
