ABSTRACT
The article looks at various two- and three-dimensional figures and how many sides and faces they each have. When a figure is flat (two-dimensional), it is a plane figure. When a figure takes up space (three-dimensional), it is a solid figure. The flat surface of a solid figure is called a face. Plane and solid figures come in many different shapes. The flat surface of a cube is a square.

We study the stress state of laminated inhomogeneous closed cylindrical shells generally with an arbitrary cross section, taking transverse shear into account on the basis of the straight-line element hypothesis. As an example, results are presented for a two-layer cylindrical shell whose cross...

A polygon is a two-dimensional figure with three or more straight sides (called line segments). A square is a polygon. Polygons have different numbers of sides and each has a different name. If the sides are all the same length and all the angles between the sides are equal, the polygon is...
