The paper presents a novel approach to solve nonlinear boundary problems for partial differential equations and its application nonlinear boundary problems of multilayered thin-walled shell theory. The approach based on Kolmogorov’s superposition allows reduction to a series of single-dimensional boundary value problems for delayed differential equations. The last ones are solved numerically with employment of Newton-Raphson method.
