It is well known that a conventional way of developing the higher-order shell formulation consists in the expansion of displacements into power series on the transverse coordinate referred to the direction normal to the middle surface. For the approximate presentation of the displacement field, it is possible to use finite segments of power series because the principal purpose of the shell theory consists in the derivation of approximate solutions of elasticity. The idea of this approach can be traced back to Cauchy and Poisson. However, its implementation for thick shells is not straightforward since it is necessary to retain a large number of terms in corresponding expansions to obtain the comprehensive results.
