OBJECTIVES:
 To impart knowledge on the behavior of plates and shell elements, their places of utility and of
course the design procedure of such elements in practical applications.
OUTCOME:
After undergoing this course, the students would be in a position to understand the behaviour of
these commonly occurring structural elements in engineering design and would have developed
the capability to design and analyse them in their normal design practice.

Plates as structural elements- stress and moment resultants- assumptions made in the classical
theory- displacement fields and strains- equations of equilibrium in Cartesian coordinates and in
polar coordinates- boundary conditions – bending of rectangular plates with various boundary
