This book provides new methods and advanced experimental techniques for the design, analysis, and testing of highly flexible deployable/inflatable structures (HFSs), including systematic nonlinear modeling approaches, newly developed geometrically exact structural theories, numerically exact solution methods, fully nonlinear finite element techniques, and non-contact techniques for static and dynamic testing.Chapter 2 presents the fundamentals of structural mechanics to prepare the reader for geometrically exact modeling ... The text, chapter questions, solutions manual, and accompanying CD will support a one-semester graduate-level course.
