This paper is confined to the study of thin shells. The aim is to summarize the different theories used and to examine the assumptions upon which each of them is based. The intention is to show when it is more suitable to use a particular approximation and to indicate the errors it introduces. Beginning with the general deep shell theory, some simplifications are introduced to obtain the shallow shell theories. The special implications of this theory for the finite element method are also examined. Finally the particular case of flat elements is discussed.
