    Research output: Book/ReportReportResearchpeer-review


    We study the accuracy of the lowest-order bending theory of shells, derived from an asymptotic expansion of the three-dimensional theory of elasticity, by comparing the results of this shell theory for a cylindrical shell with clamped ends with the results of a solution to the three-dimensional problem. The results are also compared with those of some commonly used engineering shell theories.
