Abstract:

The effect of axial elastic restrain on the instability of a circular cylindrical shell under uniform axial compression is analysed by a Rayleigh Ritz approach within the bounds of linear theory. The effect is calculated for a wide range of parameters and design curves are presented for the percentage increase in critical load. The analysis is carried out for restraints which are active from the beginning of loading and for such which come into action only at the onset of buckling. Author
