Abstract:

In the article there are examined the different variants of structural design solution and the selection of the force diagram depending upon geometric dimensions and magnitude of the external pressure. On the basis of the obtained solution it is shown that under certain relationships of the parameters it is more advantageous, from the point of view of weight, to use shells corrugated in the annular direction of the shell, and stiffened in axial direction by elastic fibers. Results of experimental data on field test-pieces and models are presented. Author
