A procedure for analyzing shells of revolution with nonaxisymmetric geometrical or physical occurrences, e.g., cutouts, is outlined. This means, of course, that the shell is not actually a shell of revolution. The goal is to take advantage of the efficient tools, e.g., numerical integration, available for analyzing shells of revolution to find the response of a shell which can be modeled as a shell of revolution with such nonaxisymmetric occurrences as cutouts or attachments.
