Abstract:

The Rayleigh-Ritz method is used to solve the problem of stability of prolate spheroidal shells under uniform external pressure. Nonlinear terms are retained in the analysis. The equal energy load and the minimum post- buckling load are determined for several cases that demonstrate the effect of varying the eccentricity of the generating ellipse.
