In this thesis we propose a way to analyze certain classes of dimension reduction models for elliptic problems in thin domains. We consider Poisson equations in thin rectangles and plates, and develop asymptotic expansions for the exact and model solutions , having the thickness as small parameter. The modeling error is then estimated by comparing the(More)
