Abstract : A straight-line element is used to analyze an axisymmetric, orthotropic shell of revolution by the finite element method. Shear deformations are included. The element stiffness re-lations were obtained from the well-known principle of minimum potential energy. A computer program to implement the solution and the instructions for its usage are also reported. Example problems illustrating accuracy and usage are included. (Author-PL)
