Abstract:

Donnell stablity equtions for thin, cilar, orthotropic conical shells are presented and solved for external presre loading. the solution is likewise appied o stiffened conical shells by consideration of equivalent othotropic shells. Typical cses are computed and compared wth corresponding isotropic shells. Correlation with equivalent cylindrical shells then yields a simple approximate stability analysis for orthotropic or ring-stiffened conical shells under hydrostatic pressure. Author
