The analog of the well-known Prager-Synge hypercircle theorem for three-dimensional, linearly elastic bodies is derived for the linear Sanders-Koiter theory of elastically anisotropic shells under surface and edge loads and then used to compute the accuracy of Novozhilov's simplified equations for an elastically isotropic general cylindrical shell. The key idea is to note that the Novozhilov equations are equivalent to the Sanders-Koiter equations with certain surface loads and distributed dislocations.
