Pagination or Media Count:
This report is concerned with the theoretical evaluation of the buckling strength of a truncated hemisphere under axial tensile load. The edges of the shell are assumed to be restrained from moving radially or from rotating. Theoretical results were obtained by Vlasovs small deflection theory and Galerkins method. The quick convergence of the series solution is demonstrated. Comparison of theoretical values with a few available experimental results is given.
