An approximate solution for a thick laminated simply supported circular cylindrical shell of revolution and shell panel subjected to asymmetric load has been obtained using elasticity approach. The results obtained from this analysis have been compared with the exact solution. Numerical results have been presented for 3-ply hybrid laminates and (0/90/0) laminates subjected to patch loads. The results have also been compared with some available classical and shear deformation theories to assess the accuracy of these theories.
