A finite element displacement method of analysis is presented for applications to laminated anisotropic shell structures. The shell element is assumed to be composed of an arbitrary number of bonded orthotropic layers, each with a different thickness, different orientation of elastic axes, and different elastic properties. A computer program written based on this method is used to analyze stresses and deformations in some filament wound fiber reinforced plastic pressure vessel components and compared with available analytical solutions.
