Shells of Revolution Subjected to Axially Symmetric Loads
Shells in which the middle surface is generated by rotating a generator about an axis are called shells of revolution. A closed cylindrical shell is the simplest case, and the analysis of stresses and deformations in such cylindrical shells was treated in Chapter 3. Due to Reissner, Meissner, and Naghdi, a generalized method of analysis can be employed for all shells of revolution subjected to axially symmetric loads without dealing with each shell geometry specifically. This treatment is presented below, because of its extreme usefulness.
