[Thermal effects refers to changes in geometry that may occur due to exposure to changes in temperature.]
[Stability is concerned with the maximum compressive load a structure can withstand before failing in a catastrophic manner.]
[A thin-walled pressure vessel is one in which the skin of the vessel has a thickness that is much smaller than the overall size of the vessel, and the vessel is subjected to internal pressure that is much greater than the exterior air pressure.]
[Plates are flat structures whose planar dimensions are much larger than the thickness. Shells are curved structures whose thickness is much smaller than the other structural dimensions.]
[Computation mechanics refers to approximate methods for solving a wide variety of problems in science and engineering. The finite element method is the most commonly used method.]
[Fibrous composites are materials consisting of lightweight, high modulus fibers inbedded in a surrounding material called the matrix. These composites have properties that vary with the direction of interest.
