Abstract:

An algorithm is developed for calculating and analyzing the stress tensor by the experimental function of deflections during the buckling of glass-fiber-reinforced plastic shells loaded with a hydrostatic load. Malmeysters theory of strength is used to qualitatively establish the possible points of shell failure. Author-PL
