Abstract:

The stability under axial compressionoion and lateral prpressure of a finite ciircular-cylindrical shell with an elastic core is treated by means of Donnells equations. For lateral pressure it is found that a previous solution treating the cylinder as a ring or a long cylinder is adequate for a wide range of combinations of length-radius ratio, radius-thickness ratio, and ratio of moduli of core and cylinder. Results for axial compression are included for completeness and to correct a previous analysis of the same problem. Author
