Abstract:

The report contains the results of an experimental study performed to evaluate the design techniques developed in an earlier report on this program, WADD TR 60-503 AD-250 269. The structural index and design-constraint parameters reflecting the structural requirements for manned space structure are evaluated, and a representative, cylindrical, double-wall shell is developed using the principles of minimum-weight design. Using specimens of half-scale cross-sectional dimensions, tests are performed on both wide columns and cylindrical shells. Author
