Abstract : IT IS KNOWN THAT THE GENERAL SOLUTION FOR A STEEP SHELL OF REVOLUTION WITH LOADS OF SUFFICIENTLY SLOW CIRCUMFERENTIAL VARIATION IS ADEQUATELY APPROXIMATED BY A LINEAR COMBINATION OF THE MEMBRANE, INEXTENSIONAL, AND EDGE EFFECT SOLUTIONS. However, a ystematic technique for evaluating the arbitrary constant for each harmonic of loading from the boundary conditions has been lacking. The solutions, including the particular solutions for surface loads and temperature effects, the deformations for the membrane solutions, and the curvature changes for the inextensional deformation, are presented in what may be their simplest form for the shell of arbitrary meridian. The relative order of magnitude of the contribution of each solution to the various stresses and displacements is tabulated. This tabulation makes apparent the relative magnitudes of the arbitrary constants required to satisfy a particular set of boundary conditions. (Author)
