Document Type: Journal Paper


Shells stated to be membranes having edge disturbances which lead to simplified design procedure especially for shells of double curvature; analogy between shell curved in one direction and beam on elastic foundations provides rapid means by which design may be made; stiffening influence of edges and types of failure; use of small scale inexpensive models; need for further research emphasized.
