The techniques used by Koiter in 1968 to derive a simplified set of linear equilibrium equations for an elastically isotropic circular cylindrical shell in terms of displacements and the associated pointwise error estimate engendered in Love’s uncoupled strain-energy density are here extended to derive analogous simplified equilibrium equations and an error estimate for elastically isotropic cylindrical shells of arbitrary closed cross section.
