The optimal geometric and physical parameters of a stepped cylindrical shell are determined. These parameters are optimal in the sense that they ensure the maximum carrying capacity of the shell for its given overall size and weight. The shell is made of a composite material. The refined theory of anisotropic shells is used with consideration of transverse shear effects on the stress-strain state.
