Bending Analysis of Axisymmetric Shells

  • M. Farshad
Part of the Solid Mechanics and Its Applications book series (SMIA, volume 16)


By the term “axisymmetric shells”, in this chapter, we mean all doubly curved as well as conical shell forms which have an axis of symmetry and are loaded in an axisymmetric fashion. Shells of revolution such as domes, single sheet hyperbolic paraboloids (used in cooling towers), and conical shells fall in this category.
