Introduction  Mechanics of anisotropic heterogeneous shells: Fundamental relations for different models  Discretecontinuous methods for solution  Solutions based on the classical model  Conclusions 
Summary 
This volume focuses on the relevant general theory and presents some first applications, namely those based on classical shell theory. After a brief introduction, during which the history and stateoftheart are discussed, the first chapter presents the mechanics of anisotropic heterogeneous shells, covering all relevant assumptions and the basic relations of 3D elasticity, classical and refined shell models. The second chapter examines the numerical techniques that are used, namely discrete orthogonalization, splinecollocation and Fourier series, while the third highlights applications based on classical theory, in particular, the stressstrain state of shallow shells, noncircular shells, shells of revolution, and free vibrations of conical shells. The book concludes with a summary and an outlook bridging the gap to the second volume
