General differential equations of a shell are presented with a method of solution for same. The bending and twisting moment terms are included. The boundary conditions are considered in the solution. The shell has no ribs or hinges. Also, a more rational approach to buckling of concrete shells is presented with consideration being given to large deflection theory of buckling and plasticity effects. The construction and behavior of the shell are discussed.
