Paraboloidal Shells of Revolution
De Silva [17.28] has considered the problem of axisymmetric loading of thin elastic paraboloidal shells of revolution which includes the effect of transverse shear deformation by using equations developed by Naghdi [19.1]. The transverse shear deformation is accounted for due to thickness considerations, and the material system considered is isotropic. That differs from the present theory which accounts for transverse shear deformation because of the large Eø/Gøξ and Eθ/Gθξ ratios involved with many composite materials although the shell is geometrically thin. Therefore, the two theories are not identical.
