Here we consider an interesting class of free of bending deformations of thin axial symmetric shells subjected to uniform normal pressure. The meridional kμ and the parallel kπ principal curvatures of the middle surfaces of such shells obey the non-linear relationship kμ = 2ak π + 3kπ , a = const. These non-bending shells depend on two arbitrary parameters, which are the principal radii rμ and rπ of some fixed parallel of the shell. Besides, these surfaces have no closed form description in… Expand

Weingarten surfaces are those whose principal curvatures satisfy a functional relation, whose set of solutions is called the curvature diagram or the W-diagram of the surface. Making use of the… Expand

We consider a class of linear Weingarten surfaces of revolution whose principal curvatures, meridional kμ and parallel kπ , satisfy the relation kμ = (n + 1)kπ , n = 0, 1, 2, . . . . The first two… Expand

An alternative formulation of the original variational problem for the mylar balloon leads to the so-called Whewell parameterization of its prole curve. This allows a derivation of various formulas… Expand
