Abstract : The objective of this research is to develop mathematical tools for determining stresses, deformation, and stability of aerospace vehicle structures. The nonlinear structural behavior, such as geometrical nonlinearity due to large deflection and the material nonlinearity due to post-yielding and time-dependent behavior of the material, is included in the investigation.
