Membrane Analysis of Shells of Revolution
In this chapter we will study the membrane behavior of shells of revolution with double curvature. The shell types analyzed in the present chapter are a subclass of shells of revolution having non-zero positive Gaussian curvature.Shells with non-zero Gaussian curvature have non-developable surfaces. Hence they are stronger, stiffer, and more stable than shells with zero Gaussian curvature.
