Introduction 1 A surface of revolution is generated by rotation of a plane curve z = f(x) about an axis Oz called the axis of rotation of that surface. The resulting surface therefore always has azimuthal symmetry. Hence, an explicit equation of a surface of revolution can be presented in the following form () = (J2 + 2), (1) where J2 + 2 is the distance of a point of the surface from the axis of rotation. Right cylindrical and conical surfaces are examples of surfaces generated by a straight line when the line is coplanar with the axis, as well as hyperboloids of one sheet when the line is skew to the axis. A sphere is a surface of revolution of a circle around an axis that passes through the center of the circle. If the circle is rotated about a coplanar axis, not crossing the circumference, then it generates a torus. Meridians are the lines of intersections of a surface of revolution with planes passing through an axis of rotation. All meridians of one surface of revolution are congruent to the rotated curve. A plane passing through the axis of the surface of revolution is called the meridian plane. It is the plane of symmetry of the surface. Any surface of revolution has the infinite number of planes of symmetry. Parallels are the lines of intersection of the surface with planes orthogonal to an axis of rotation. Meridians and parallels of a surface of revolution are the lines of principal curvatures. Any normal of surfaces of revolution intersects its axis of rotation. A surface of revolution having more than one axis of rotation is a sphere or a plane. Tangents to all meridians in the points located on one parallel circle are lines on the tangent conical (or cylindrical) surface of revolution, which is created by the revolution of the tangent about the axis of the rotation. A vertex of the tangent conical surface is located on the axis of revolution. A parallel is called the neck circle, if tangent planes to the surface of revolution in the points on this circle are parallel to the axis of revolution and the tangent cylindrical surface is located inside the surface of revolution. A parallel is called the equator circle, if tangent planes to the surface of revolution in the points on this circle are parallel to the axis of revolution and the tangent cylindrical surface is located outside the surface of revolution. A parallel is called the crater circle, if tangent plane to the surface of revolution in the points on this circle is perpendicular to the axis of revolution and normal to the surface of revolution in the points of this parallel are parallel to the axis of revolution and 0, = 1(α), 0, 2 ∙ sin(α), (3) where R1 is the principal radius of curvature of the meridian that is the coordinate line of α, R2 is the principal radius of curvature of the parallel. The lines α = const are parallels and the lines β = const are meridians. If an equation of a meridian is given in the form r = r (z) (Figure 1) then an equation of a surface of revolution can be written with the help of three scalar equations: ∙ sin(β), = ∙ cos(β), = , (3’) where r = r(z) is a function that determines the shape of the meridian (a profile curve); β is the angle of rotation of the plane of the meridian and then √1 + r2, = 0, = (), form the normal cylindrical surface. 1 = 1 = R r1 1 3 , 2 = R = 1 , (3’’) Umbilical points of a surface of revolution are pla- 1 (1+r12)2 2 r∙√1+r12 ced on those latitudes on which a center of curvature of a meridian is located on the axis of rotation. Sphere is umbilical surface. Under Alexis-Claude Clairaut theorem, the product of a radius of a parallel into cosines of an angle of intersection of the geodesic line with the parallel is constant along the geodesic line. A surface of revolution admits bending into another surface of revolution and a net of lines of principal curvatures is remained. Parametrical equations of arbitrary surface of revolution are ( β) = ∙ sin(β) ∙ + ∙ cos(β)∙ + () ∙ . (2) Assume an equation of a meridian in the form r = r(α) where α is the angle of the normal to the surface passing through a given point with the axis of rotation (Figure 1) then r = R2 sin(α). where the derivatives with respect to z are denoted by primes; k1, k2 are principal curvatures of the surface. Normal curvature of a surface in the direction of the meridian is equal to a curvature of the meridian, i.e., k1. Meridians of surface of revolution are geodesic lines. Catenoid is the only one minimal surface of revolution. One-sheet hyperboloid of revolution, right circular cylinder and right circular cone are the only ruled surfaces. The last two surfaces are the only developable surface of revolution. If a beginning and an end of unclosed rotated line are placed on an axis of rotation, then the surface of revolution will be the closed one. 1. Geometric Modeling One-sheet hyperboloid of revolution is generated by the rotation of hyperbola about the z-axis (Figure 2, a). These are twice ruled surface. Х2 Z2 Figure 1. Kinematics of generating of a surface of revolution Coefficients of the fundamental forms of the surface of revolution can be obtained with the help of formulas: (α) = 1(α), (α) = = 2 ∙ sin(α), a2 c2 = 1. (4) Thorough every point of the surface, two straight lines, lying on the hyperboloid, pass (Figure 2, b). A hyperboloid can be constructed by rotation of a generatrix straight line about the z-axis but the straight generatrix and the axis are skew lines (Figure 2, c and d). The surface is the only one ruled surface of revolution of negative Gaussian curvature. The parallel lying in a plane z = 0 has a radius r = a and is called a waist circumference that represents a geodesic line. All of the rest of the geodesic lines besides the equator go from infinity coming. Nearer to the equator. One of them intersects the equator and goes to other half of the surface but others do not reach the equator and touching the some parallel, turn back; the third geodesic lines come nearer asymptotically to the equator. a b c d Figure 2.

Petropavlovskaya [1]. The article [2] gives a comparative analysis of the stability of the initial form of equilibrium of reticulated shells in the form of single-sheeted hyperboloids of revolution. The analyses are performed both considering only geometric and double (geometric and physical) nonlinearity. The influence of the shape of the generatrix of a single-sheeted hyperboloid of revolution and the physical nonlinearity of the material on its stability in the indicated formulations of the problem is considered. The curves of the equilibrium states of the shells under load acting on the upper base are given. In the review article [3] are summarized principal achievements of science and engineering in the sphere of design, construction, and static, vibrational, and buckling analysis of thin-walled constructions and buildings in the shape of hyperbolic surfaces of revolution. These shells are useful as hyperbolic cooling towers, TV towers, reinforced concrete water tanks, and arch dams. They are also used as supports for electric power transmission lines and as high chimneys. Several public and industrial buildings having the hyperbolic form are described in the review. The basic results of theoretical and experimental investigations of stress-strain state, buckling, and vibration are summarized. The influence of temperature and moisture on the stress-strain state of the shells in question is also analyzed. In book [4] J.N. Reddy presents the theory and computer implementations of the finite element method as applied to nonlinear problems of heat transfer and similar field problems, fluid mechanics (flows of incompressible fluids), and solid mechanics (elasticity, beams and plates). Both geometric as well as material nonlinearities are considered, and static and transient (i.e.: time-dependent) responses are studied. S.I. Trushin and Ph.I. Petrenko in paper [5] investigated the influence of form of hyperboloid’s generatrix on its stress-strain state, stability and fundamental frequency. The results of numerical analysis of reticulated shells under different loads are given. The article [6] studies the impact of the shape of the generatrix of a discrete reticulated shell in the form of a one-sheet hyperboloid of revolution on its stability. It studies the stability of a reticulated hyperboloid with five types of frames formed from the generatrices of the hyperbolae with one asymptote. For comparison, the study examines an additional frame with rectilinear generatrices - the asymptotes of hyperbolae generatrices, the properties of which are different from those of shells with a curvilinear rod network. The work presents the results of the numerical analysis of the reticulated shell performed with the help of finite element method in a geometrically non-linear setting. The article also presents the curves of the equilibrium states of the shell under horizontal and vertical concentrated loads. The data obtained has made it possible to conclude on the impact of the used generatrix on the stability of the frame of reticulated shells in the form of hyperboloid of revolution. 4. Linear and materially nonlinear analyses (MNA) of thin shells in the shape of one-sheet hyperboloid of revolution In the linear material model, the stress-strain relationship must be linear with slope E, Young’s Modulus (Hooke’s law): σ = ∙ ε, (12) where σ is the normal stress and ε is the strain. Material nonlinearity is a concern whenever the response at the operating loads causes strain levels in a material beyond the portion of the stress-strain curve that can reasonably be approximated as linear. Many materials have curves that deviate small amounts from linear for large amounts of strain so that, with all the other uncertainty in the model, there would be little value in a nonlinear material model. On the other hand, many curves deviate from linear almost immediately to such a degree that only the roughest trend studies can be made with a linear approximation. The constant of proportionality in a linear material model is Young’s Modulus. This represents the slope of the linear portion of the stress-strain curve (Figure 3). For highly nonlinear materials, this modulus may only be applicable at very low strains. Figure 3. Stress-strain curve Nonlinear material models of common engineering materials are defined by specifying their stressstrain curves. Most stress-strain curves represent only the tensile response. When a material has the same response in tension and compression, it is said to be symmetric. Cast iron is a good example of an asymmetric stress-strain behavior as it is stronger in compression than tension. Types of nonlinear materials There are several types of material nonlinearity that might be present in a structural analysis: 1 - nonlinear elastic; 2 - bi-linear elastic-plastic; 3 - multilinear plastic; 4 - hyperplastic; 5 - viscoelastic. Simplified models of stress-strain curves are shown in Figure 4. Linear elastic Nonlinear elastic Bi-linear elasto-plastic Multi-linear plastic Figure 4. Types of nonlinear materials A nonlinear material model can be defined as nonlinear elastic where the part returns to a zero strain state when the load is removed or elastic-plastic where permanent strain begins to accumulate after reaching the yield strength of the material. Additionally, an elastic-plastic stress-strain curve can be input as bi-linear, where only an elastic modulus and a plasticity or hardening modulus are entered. It can also be defined as a multi-linear stress-stress curve where the true nonlinearity of the plastic range can be captured with a series of points. 5. The comparison of the linear and materially nonlinear results MNA Let us consider concrete c20/25 as a material for our model. The shell are subject to the following loads: 1 - self-weight; 2 - wind load on + Y direction. The shells are investigated with fixed supports. The load combinations in the used software RFEM is: (1.4∙ selfweight + 1.6∙wind loads) according to Eurocode. The dimensions for our model are the following: height 36 m, the upper diameter 20 m, the diameter on base 31.5 m, thickness 15 cm. For materially nonlinear analysis we use isotopic nonlinear 2D/3D concert as following (Figure 5). Figure 5. FE design model of thin shells in the shape of one-sheet hyperboloid of revolution in RFEM The results of our investigation are showed the maximum displacements for our structure under loads at three direction with linear and nonlinear analysis (Figures 6 and 7). Linear and materially nonlinear analyses are made for this structure under free vibration to show the influence of materially nonlinear analysis under free vibration. Let us assume three vibration pattern for our analysis, the results are showed in table. Ux = 0.01 cm Uy = 0.12 cm Uz = -0.09 cm Overall displacement U = 0.15 cm Figure 6.

Models of Ux, Uy and Uz displacements Conclusion The linear and the materially nonlinear analyses (MNA) investigations of the stability behavior of thin shells in the form of an hyperboloid of revolution by the software program R-FEM show that for both linear and materially nonlinear analyses: · the values of displacements under materially nonlinear analysis are bigger than those obtained from linear analysis subject to self-weight and wind load; · there is a similarity between the results of linear and materially nonlinear analyses for this investigated thin shell subject to free vibration.
