Speaker:
Christian Constanda,
Department of Mathematics, University of Tulsa "TimeDependent Bending of Thin Elastic Plates"Abstract: An outline is presented of the boundary integral equation method in application to the timedependent model of bending of plates with transverse shear deformation. The fundamental initialboundary value problems are reduced to integral equations on the contour of the domain, and the latter are solved in spaces of distributions. A nonlinear initialboundary value problem is then considered for a thermoelastic plate, and a Galerkin method is developed for approximating its solution.
