Abstract:

Analytical methods for predicting the largedeformation behavior of currugated cylindrical and conical shell structures are presented, and tests with simple corrugated specimens for evaluating the theoretical predictions are described. Tests on corrugated strips loaded into the plas tic range for evaluating previously developed analyses are described, and correlations with theoretical predictions are shown. A novel bimetallic flexural spring damper is described. Moment-curvature tests to demonstrate the behavior are discussed and correlations with theoretical predictions are shown. Author
