The history of scientific discoveries in elasticity theory that preceded the creation of the theory of shells is described. The way of finding solutions and the logic of scientific discoveries are indicated, including the history of the question of the position of the neutral line of a loaded beam and the history of the derivation of the equations of elasticity theory. Some applied questions of analytical methods, including the method of asymptotic expansions, are discussed. The prospects and current use of methods of mechanics and the concept of shells in interdisciplinary research are described.
