Abstract:

The governing equations for the nonlinear analysis of imperfect, stiffended, laminated, circular, cylindrical, thin shells, subjected to uniform axial compression and torsion, and supported in various ways, are derived and presented. Two types of formulations have been developed one w,F - Formulation is based Donnell-type nonlinear kinematic relations and the other u,v,w, - formulation is based on Sanders -type of nonlinear kinematic relations small strains, moderate rotations about in-plane axes.
