This report complements the Interim Report TAE 228, which summarized the major portion of the investigation. It discusses the stability and vibrations of stiffened and unstiffened shells under axial compression, as well as thermal buckling. The studies include theoretical and experimental work, with emphasis on elastic constraints, on correlation between vibrations and buckling and on the influence of initial imperfections on vibrations and stability. A new incremental theory for the nonlinear elasto-plastic behavior of structures is formulated.
