Abstract : The equations governing the axisymmetric deformation of shallow shells (caps) of revolution are derived without introducing the simplifying assumption concerning the transverse shear force that is basic to the Mushtari-Vlasov approximation of thin shell theory. The equations derived are then specialized for the case of shallow spherical caps and compared with the Reissner equation which is a special case of the Mushtari-Vlasov approximation. Two problems are solved and the results are compared with the corresponding solutions of the Reissner equation. (Author)
