- linear and nonlinear theory;
- constitutive laws;
- shells and plates with internal microstructure;
- smart composite structures;
- membrane and deployable structures;
- active and passive structure control;
- hybrid and branched structures;
- beam - shell interaction;
- stability, dynamics, optimization, reliability, sensitivity, damage, limit load analysis etc.

Numerical analysis of shell structures and elements, including:
- numerical methods: FEM, BEM and others;
- computer modeling and simulation;
- durability;
- analysis of nonstandard problems;
- development of software packages.

Design and maintenance of shell structures, including:
- industrial applications in civil, power, mining and mechanical engineering, as well as in automotive,
shipbuilding, aerospace and chemical processing industries;
- shell design codes and procedures (e.g. Eurocode);
- Computer Aided Design;
- case studies of various shell structures and failure problems.

Special surface-related mechanical problems such as:
- material and non-material interfaces, thin micro- and nano-films, biological membranes, liquid
crystals, capillarity, contact problems, growth phenomena, shell formfinding etc.
