Membrane Analysis of Thin Shell Structures

The analysis of thin cylindrical shell structures has been tried to be performed using Membrane Theory due to
advantage of lesser complexity. The adequacy the theory has been tried to be checked and the results were
compared with bending theory as well. The variation of the stress resultants with respect to less and rotation
angle was observed. The project gives a basic idea about the shell structures and its area of implementation and
adequacy of various theories.
