Abstract : The major effort is to provide design data on the crack-stopping characteristics of hoops or straps on pressurized cylinders. Approximately 50 flat panels, 10 unstiffened cylinders and 36 stiffened cylinders (of 30-inch diameter) are to be tested with variations in hoop proportions and hoop and stiffener spacing. Half of the specimens are to be of titanium 8A1-1V-1Mo duplex annealed, and the other half of PH14-8 Mo SRH 1050 steel. In addition, exploratory studies will be conducted to investigate the problems of designing a bomb-resistant structure. (Author)
