A recent method for deriving, by descent from three dimensions, strain-energy densities in a first-approximation, large-strain theory of incompressible, elastically isotropic shells of revolution undergoing torsionless, axisymmetric deformation (axishells) is adapted to axishells made of compressible material. Application is made to the Blatz-Ko strain-energy densities for a polyurethane (“continuum”) rubber and a foam rubber.
