Displacement Governing Equations of Moderately Thick Cylindrical Shallow Shells by Transverse Shearing Deformation and the General Solution
Displacement fundamental equations of the moderately thick cylindrical shallow shells concerning five independent variables, i.e. five middle surface displacements are established based on the displacement fundamental equations of the moderately thick shells by transverse shearing deformation and basic hypothesis on shallow shells. Three assistant displacement functions are introduced to solve the equations, which are tenth-order differential equations with variable coefficient; and then five second-order differential equations are converted into a second-order differential equation and two fourth-order transition differential equations using the Cauchy-Riemann condition, afterwards another assistant displacement function is introduced to build its decoupled governing differential equations, finally five displacement components through four assistant displacement functions are obtained.
