A review on non-classical continuum mechanics with applications in marine engineering
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article › Scientific › peer-review
Marine structures are advanced material and structural assemblies that span over different length scales. The classical structural design approach is to separate these length scales. The used structural models are based on classical continuum mechanics. There are multiple situations where the classical theory breaks down. Non-classical effects tend arise when the size of the smallest repeating unit of a periodic structure is of the same order as the full structure itself. The aim of the present paper is to discuss representative problems from different length scales of ship structural design.
