Abstract : The method of asymptotic expansion of the threedimensional equations of linear elasticity is briefly reexamined, simplified and extended to dynamic problems. Moreover, via a new derivation of the bending equations of shells (called here shell equations), the results of two lines of attack are shown to be related. Other aspects of the subject dealt with include the reduction of shell equations to the simpler basic ingredients resulting from the asymptotic expressions, a procedure for the solution of static problems which may prove useful in some cases, and a discussion of boundary layer equations and edge effects.
