The paper is concerned with a nonlinear formulation of the problem of rotationally symmetric deformations of thin elastic shells of revolution, which are acted upon by edge forces and moments. Determined are, in particular, nonlinear corrections to the known results of the linear theory, for edge displacements and rotations. The calculations are for cases for which thickness and curvature of the shell are such as to insure that stresses and deformations are effectively contained within a narrow edge zone of the shell.
