Many shell structures, Fig. 12-1, have shapes other than cylindrical or spherical. These include hyperbolic paraboloids, Fig. 12-2a, elliptic paraboloids, Fig. 12-2b, barrel structures, Fig. 12-3a, and folded plates, Fig. 12-3b. These structures are characterized by having a small depth to length ratio. They are referred to as shallow shells and the derivation of their pertinent equations is based on the following assumptions

1. The depth to length ratio is less than about 0.20.

2. Forces are mainly due to uniformly distributed dead and live loads.

3. Forces are projected on a rectangular coordinate system for ease of calculations.
