Re: shell stability

I don't know if this reference meets your ideas of practical, but I used
David P. Billington's book Thin Shell Concrete Structures in Grad
school and really liked it.  I thought that the book gave me the theory
and then reduced the concepts to the more practical.

The fifth chapter is on the Analysis of Circular Cylindrical Shells, and
5-5 is on the Solution of The Shallow-Shell Equations.

I hope that helps.

Take Care,
