Abstract : A comparison of the static solutions for a shallow spherical shell is presented for three thin shell computer programs. The comparison is made for a typical shallow spherical shell in order to compare the accuracy, the ease of input, and the required computer time for each program. The thin shell computer programs involved include a program using an exact solution, a numerical integration static program, and a finite difference static program developed by the North American Aviation Corporation.
