Solutions for the normal displacement w and tangential displacements ux and uy for a shallow cylindrical shell subjected to concentrated forces are obtained in this paper. The normal force and the two tangential force cases are treated. The results for the displacements in all cases are expressible in terms of elementary functions, modified Bessel functions, and one new function of two variables. A reasonably complete investigation of this function is included.
