dc.description.abstractA shell theory is introduced which uses linearly exact expressions for the transverse variation of the displacement components. These displacement variations, first formulated by Kozik, include separately the effects of transverse normal strain and transverse shear deformation. The shell theory is applied to a semi-infinite circular cylindrical shell with axisymmetric edge loading in order to investigate the significance of the transverse effects. The results of the study show that the inclusion of the transverse effects do not significantly alter the results of classical shell theory. However, the theory presents a means for determining the transverse strain distributions within the shell.en
