Abstract:

The book discusses calculation concerning shells of revolution and elements of thin-walled constructions for strength, rigidity and stability under various forms of force action. Such problems include, for example, calculations of doughnut-shaped shells, loaded by internal pressure, spherical shells, loaded by local loads, etc. Problems of stability of shells are given in the book in a new formulation. The conditions on the contour of half-waves are determined by loading conditions and the proposed form of loss of stability. The new approach to these problems refines and expands the concept of stability of shells and gives the possibility of solving practically important problems.
