Thin shells are unique among structural systems for the interest they inspire. Architects like the dramatic space-creating possibilites inherent in their forms, while engineers are impressed by the efficiency with which material is utilized. The fascination with shells is shared by critics.

The proposed hangars for Trans World Airlines at the Kansas City International Airport in Kansas City will have a concrete shell roof structure composed of several hypar surfaces arranged to fit closely the shapes of the new large airplanes, and to provide a strong lightweight structure.
It is the purpose of this paper to present a "state of the art" discussion of the analysis of cylindrical shells and folded plates. Because these shell systems have been used widely during the past 30-40 years in reinforced concrete structures of all types, the literature on their analysis is very extensive.
The history of the development of shells in the United States is reviewed. Current trends and practices are examined. Observations and recommendations are made with respect to the future.

A multi-million dollar International Trade Center has recently been completed in New Orleans, Louisiana, a city which is second only to New York City in the U.S.A. in the volume of its international trade. The project is situated on a five acre plaza adjacent to the Mississippi River and consists of a 33 story Trade Mart tower providing 520,000 sq ft of office and commercial space, an International Convention and Exhibition Facility providing 250,000 sq ft of exhibition space, and parking below grade for 820 cars (see Fig. 5-1).
