Abstract:

A compilation of the analytical operations for the structural analysis of a truncated spherical shell based jointly upon an evaluation of research effort and operational performance is presented. The 4 primary problem areas of loading, shell conversion, stability, and strength which confront the engineer in the structural design of such a shell are discussed in detail. In each of these problem areas, computational methods or approaches are offered which may be adopted as design procedure.
