Abstract:

The report discusses a system of equations which is suitable for the analysis of thin, circular, cylindrical, elastic shells under the following assumption The effect of internal pressure is of sufficient magnitude to make the bending stiffness of the shell walls unimportant for the load-carrying characteristics of the shell. Futhermore, it is assumed that deflections are small enough to allow use of a linearized system of equations. Author
