Title: Determination of Membrane Stresses in Elliptic Paraboloids Using Polynomials
Author(s): L. Fischer
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 433-442
Abstract:A mathematically simple method for determining the membrane stresses in an elliptic paraboloid is given. The differential equations of equilibrium are solved by the introduction of a polynomial representing the stress func- tion, the coefficients of which are easily determined. The membrane stresses are then readily found as derivatives of the stress function. A numerical example illustrates the use of this method.
