220.127.116.11 External work of surface forces
We assume that surface forces are applied on the shell front face ( ). Therefore, the external work of surface forces has the form In other words, the treatment of surface forces on a shell becomes identical to the treatment of surface forces on the face of a solid. No special treatment is needed.
