Abstract:

An experimental study of the buckling of closely spaced integrally stiffened cylindrical shells under axial compression was carried out to determine the influence of shell and ring geometry on the applicability of linear theory. 29 specimens fabricated from 7075-T6 aluminum alloy with different geometries were tested. Test specimens were designed to fail in general instability and under low critical stresses to assure elastic buckling.
