THE PRESIDENT invited the meeting to accord a vote of thanks to Mr. Cousins for having prepared the paper and for having presented it so admirably. It was a very great pleasure to propose the meeting’s thanks to him because, although he had said that he thought the particular building described had not much to recommend it from the structural point of view, Mr. Cousins was being unduly modest in that respect.
The modern shell structure has to withstand internal and external pressures together with forces acting on the surfaces over relatively small areas. The advent of the large containment vessels in thc field of Nuclear Power Engineering (for example the Dounreay Sphere) introduced the need for a closer examination of the stresses andeformations In regions such as the sphere to cylindrical skirt connection and in the vicinity of lugs and various other attachments to the shell. The variety and relative complexity of the design problems encountered call for a flexible method capable of application to stress and deformation analysis over a wide field. A. S. Tooth and J. D. W.
