Abstract:

The effect of destructive heating applied to the surface of a cylindrical shell of composite material subjected to compressive end loads or uniform external pressure is considered theoretically, and the results compared with those of previously reported experiments by the same authors. The reduction in the value of critical load which occurs with increasing exposure time is considered in terms of the reducing structurally effective thickness of the wall. Author-PL.
