Shell equations are employed to solve case of hydrostatic pressure acting on segmental arch ring; results are compared with solution by classical approach; limitations of Donnell's equation and new aspects of nature of differences between Flugge's and Timoshenko's equation; pertinent to application of shell theories in design of arch dams.
