Abstract:A finite element method is described which can be used to analyze reinforced concrete shells of general form under dead load and monotonically increasing live loads. Load deformation response, internal stresses, and crack forma-tion can be traced through the elastic, inelastic and ultimate ranges. The method is applied to study the structural re-sponse of a cylindrical shell. Analytical and experimental results are compared. [Authors]
