A r eview o f t h e existing knowledge of buckling of shells. Note is taken of the lack of information concern ed with concrete shells as against that ava ilable for plastic and metal shells. Report ed work in metal and plastic shells in the areas of elastic, in elastic, and large deflection theory of buckling is applied to concrete shells. Cylindrical shells are discussed under conditions of axial load, radial pressure load, torsional load, and bending. Spherical shells under radial pressure and curved plates under bending are also covered.
