Abstract:

The present report is the fourth part of a series bearing the general title of Distortions and Stresses of Paraboloidal Surface Structures. Asymptotic integration methods are used to obtain solutions for shells which are deeper than those treated in Part III AD-417 081. A large number of specific configurations has been analyzed and the numerical results are presented in the form of dimensionless plots. The discussion is focused on the deformation behavior under gravity loads as it is affected by the span of the shell, the direction of the gravity vector, and the boundary conditions. There are also contour plots of deflections relative to the face-up position which depict the change in the shapes of the paraboloidal surface as the direction of the gravity vector is changed.
