Abstract:

Large deformation elastic-plastic buckling loads are obtained for axisymmetric spherical caps with initial imperfections. The problem formulation is based on equilibrium equations in which the plastic deformation is taken as effective plastic loads. Plasticity theory is derived from von Mises initial yield condition and Prager-Ziegler kinematic hardening rule. Results show that both initial imperfection and plastic deformation have the same effect of reducing buckling loads, and that the influence of plastic yielding diminishes as the magnitude of imperfections increases.
