This paper presents the stress resultants of hyperbolic paraboloidal shells using higher order shear deformation theory recently developed by Zannon [1]-[3]. The equilibrium equations of motion use Hamilton’s minimum energy principle for a simply supported cross-ply structure by Zannon (TSDTZ)[2][3]. The results are calculated for orthotropic, two-ply unsymmetrical [90/0] shells. The extensional, bending and coupling stiffness parameters are calculated using MATLAB algorithm for laminated composite hyperbolic paraboloidal shells. A comparison of the present study with other researchers in the literature is given, and is in good agreement.
