Abstract:

The response of an infinitely long cylindrical shell buried in a bi-linear hysteretic material is obtained for a pressure pulse, ptheta, tau applied to the inner boundary of the shell. The solution is obtained from a characteristic approach. This is a two-dimensional development of previous work which was axi-symmetric in nature. Comparisons of this solution with results from a finite-element computer code using the same two-dimensional configuration are given. The comparisons are good. Computations are also presented for cases with and without slip between the medium and the shell.
