Abstract:

Eight 4-in.-diameter, machined aluminum hemispheres with an axially symmetric mismatch machined in at the 45-deg meridional angle were hydrostatically tested to determine the effect of mismatch on the collapse strength of spherical shells. Results are plotted in terms of nondimensional parameters and are compared with previous test results from machined aluminum hemispheres without mismatch. Author
