ON THE BUCKLING OF CIRCULAR CYLINDRICAL SHELLS UNDER EXTERNAL PRESSURE,
COLUMBIA UNIV NEW YORK
Pagination or Media Count:
A general bending theory of circular cylindrical shells under the influence of initial stress, established recently by the authors, is employed in re-examining the buckling of such shells under external pressure, and the results are compared to those of previous investigations. Simple but accurate expressions for the buckling pressure applicable to a wide range of shell dimensions are presented. Author
