An asymptotic theory is presented for the analysis of laminated annular spherical shells by the perturbation method. By means of proper nondimensionalization, asymptotic expansion, and then successive integration of the basic equations through the thickness direction, we obtain the recursive sets of governing equations for the bending analysis of annular spherical shells. The method of differential quadrature is adopted for solving the problems of various orders. Illustrative examples are given to demonstrate the performance of the present asymptotic theory.
