We exploit the possibility of deforming a shell by assigning a target metric, which, for 2D structures, is decomposed into the first and second target fundamental-forms. As well known, an elastic shell may change its shape under two different kinds of actions: one are the loadings, the other one are the distortions, also known as the pre-strains. Actually, the target fundamental forms prescribe a sought shape for the solid, and the metric effectively realized is the one that minimizes the distance, measured through an elastic energy, between the target and the actual fundamental forms. The proposed method is very effective in deforming shells.

Abstract

We exploit the possibility of deforming a shell by assigning a target metric, which, for 2D structures, is decomposed into the first and second target fundamental-forms. As well known, an elastic shell may change its shape under two different kinds of actions: one are the loadings, the other one are the distortions, also known as the pre-strains. Actually, the target fundamental forms prescribe a sought shape for the solid, and the metric effectively realized is the one that minimizes the distance, measured through an elastic energy, between the target and the actual fundamental forms. The proposed method is very effective in deforming shells.
