## Abstract

The consistent approximation approach is a dimension-reduction technique for the derivation of lower-dimensional analytical theories for thin structural members from the three-dimensional theory of elasticity. It was successfully applied to a variety of problems by numerous authors. The approach is based on a structured truncation of the elastic energy.
