Abstract:The general theory of thin translational shells was developed by Piicher and Fltigge. In the present paper the finite difference approach of Piicher is applied to the analysis of translational shells generated by arcs of circles. Formulas are obtained for the analysis of rectangular shells and are applied numerically to a square shell. Tests to destruction were conducted in Piacenza, Italy, on a 30 x 45-ft shell of this type. Tests of this reinforced concrete and tile shell proved the complete validity of the assumptions and of the results of this analysis.
