A mathematical model of Koiter's type for a nonlinearly elastic “almost spherical” shell
Comptes Rendus. Mathématique, Volume 354 (2016) no. 12, pp. 1241-1247.

We propose a new nonlinear shell model of Koiter's type, i.e. one that combines membrane and flexural strains, which can be used in the case where the middle surface of the undeformed shell is “almost spherical”, in the sense that its Gaussian curvature $Kε$ and mean curvature $Hε$ satisfy $Kε=Hε2+O(ε2)$, where 2ε denotes the thickness of the shell.

Nous proposons un nouveau modèle non linéaire de coques du type de Koiter, c'est-à-dire combinant les déformations membranaires et en flexion, qui peut être utilisé lorsque la surface moyenne de la coque non déformée est « presque sphérique », au sens que sa courbure gaussiene $Kε$ et sa courbure moyenne $Hε$ satisfont $Kε=Hε2+O(ε2)$, où 2ε désigne l'épaisseur de la coque.
