A computer program LINSHL is developed for the linear static analysis of stiffened shell structures. The program incorporates a high precision triangular cylindrical shell element, a high precision triangular shallow shell element, a curved beam element and a straight beam element. Numerical results are presented for the stress analysis of practical structures such as a ring-stiffened cylinder and a canopy hood of a typical aircraft, and are found to be in reasonable agreement with alternate solution methods
