Homogenization techniques were used by Duvaut (1976,1978) in asymptotic analyse of 3-dimensional periodic continuum problems and periodic von Kármán plates. In this paper we homogenize Budiansky-Sanders linear, elastic shells with material parameters rapidly oscillating on the shell surface. We obtain a homogenized shell model which is elliptic and depends on explicitly calculated effective material parameters. We show that the solution of the periodic shell model converges weakly to the solution of the homogenized model when the period tends to zero.
