Explains step-by-step the procedure for the design of various types of shells and folded plates.
The book is lecture-based, each chapter dealing with one topic. (This enables the teachers to plan their lectures in a proper fashion.)
Provides a large number of worked-out examples and review questions at ends of chapters, which are illustrative and act as brain teasers.
Gives large number of diagrams to illustrate the concepts discussed. This reader friendly book is intended as a text for the postgraduate students of Civil Engineering Architecture. As with all the books of Prof. P.C. Varghese, who brings in all his years of experience and expertise into his work, this book too would be of immense value to practising engineers and architects besides the students.
