Non-linear static and dynamic response of spherical shells
Review articleOpen access

AbstractIn the present investigation an analytical technique using Chebyshev series expansion has been presented and used to study the non-linear transient behavior of shallow spherical shells with and without damping. The two coupled non-linear differential equation governing the shallow shell behavior are initially linearised using Taylor's series expansion. Results have been presented for three types of transient loadings, namely, step function, N-shaped pulse and sine wave pulse. It is shown that accurate results can be obtained using a five terms Chebyshev series expansion which is unlikely in the conventional methods.
