A general method is presented for solving shallow shell problems with finite boundaries and with an arbitrarily placed load that is uniformly distributed over a circular area of radius r0 . A known solution for the distributed load on an unbounded shell is used to describe the load effects, and this particular solution is combined with Reissner’s general solution of the shallow shell equations in such a manner that all the boundary conditions are satisfied. Numerical results have been obtained for a shallow shell, clamped at the outer boundary and having a circular polar aperture free of tractions and support.
