Abstract : An asymptotic integration technique is developed to describe the post-buckling behavior of thin elastic shells. The introduction of slow space and time scales directly into the shell differential equations permits a modeling of dynamic effects and a means of accounting for finite boundaries. A minimal principle is derived which exhibits the consistency of the present approach with the variational procedures of Koiter and others. (Author)
