Basic Scientific Trends:

Theory of ribbed shells allowing for the discrete distribution of ribs. Statics of ribbed shells of revolution.

Natural and induced vibration of the ribbed shells of revolution with regard for the complicating factors (availability of added masses, recesses, account for power scattering).

Propagation of harmonic waves in the ribbed cylindrical shells.Nonlinear vibrations and stress-strained state of the ribbed cylindrical shell under the conditions of nonstationary loading.

Stability of ribbed shells of revolution with regard for complicating factors (nonhomogenecity and nonlinearity of precritical state, availability of initial cambers).
