Abstract:

Exact solutions are derived of the classical differential equations defining the deformations of axially compressed thin-walled circular cylindrical shells. The end conditions along the circular edges are assumed as the vanishing of 1 the radial displacement 2 of the longitudinal bending moment 3 of the variation in the axial normal stress, and 4 of the circumferential membrane shear stress. Under these conditions of simple support the critical value of the uniformly distributed axial normal stress is one-half the classical critical value. Author
