Abstract:

A complete experimental and theoretical elastic analysis has been made of the flat base shell and a procedure for programming the analysis on a digital computer has been provided. Excellent progress was made on three principal remaining problems, namely the behavior of filler materials, the interaction between filler and shell, and yielding of the shell in the vicinity of the rotating band.
