Abstract : Stress-strain relations developed for rotationally symmetric bending and stretching of shallow segments of thin spherical shells are extended to evaluate the response of a glass dome with edge constraint to a uniformly applied load over a small circular area at the apex. Theoretically derived stress-strain curves for the constrained-edge case are compared with similar curves with experimental results from several static tests. Also the effects of degree of edge constraint and locad concentration are demonstrated and discussed. (Author)
