On the calculation of shallow shells


naca-tm-1425
1956


Two simultaneous equations of V. Z. Vlasov for the stresses and deflections of shallow shells are stated and somewhat simplified for application to the problems of uniform and concentrated loading on a shell bounded by a coordinate rectangle. Numerical results are given. The lines of curvature are used as coordinates.
