Abstract : In the work a new, improved theory of anisotropic shells is constructed, based on the following assumptions: (a) in determining given deformations it is considered that the given tangential stress do not differ from the given coressponding stress which are located according to classical theory; (b) deformation given and normal stress given do not differ from the given corresponding values of classical theory. As usual, the shell is related to a triorthogonal system of curvilinear coordinates given. The difference in the proposed theory, as opposed to those known before, consists of the fact that here there is no widespread hypothesis about the independence of given normal motion from coordinate.
