This paper deals with the effects of symmetrical loading on thin shells of uniform thickness; cyclical loads are not included. The equations of equilibrium and stress-strain relations are established for a portion of thin curved plate subject to tangential and radial loading. From these are derived the particular sets of equations for circular flat plates, cylindrical, conical and spherical walls. The distortion and stress equations for the different sets are presented In expressions of similar type. In conical and spherical walls, experimental corroboration has been obtained for the more complicated expressions, which are believed to appear for the first time. The applications include important practical engineering problems on the separate and combined forms. A comparison of the probable effects between welded and riveted joints in the cylindrical wall with a hemispherical dished end serves as an introduction to a final discussion of the elliptical and double segmental end.
