Abstract : The computer program listed can be used to calculate the stresses anddeflections in a specially orthotropic shallow or nonshallow spherical shellof revolution subjected to a normal concentrated load in the apex region ofthe shell. The effect of transverse shear deformation is included suchthat any ratio of elastic modulus/shear modulus is possible. The programis written in ASA FORTRAN IV compatible with the scientific data system9300 computer. (Author, modified-PL)
