    • A general condition for the existence of unconnected equilibria for symmetric arches 

      Zhou, Yang; Stanciulescu, Ilinca (2018)
      This paper presents a semi-analytical study of unconnected equilibrium states for symmetric curved beams. Using the Fourier series approximation, a general condition for the existence of unconnected equilibria for symmetric shallow arches is derived for the first time. With this derived condition, we can directly determine whether or not a shallow ...
