Abstract:

This report contains documentation for four computer programs used in the imperfection sensitivity analysis of cylindrical shells. The four programs are based upon Donnells equation for cylindrical shells. The formulation of each program is worked in detail so others may make modification. Input and output instructions, together with the program listings, are provided. This report is in two volumes. Volume I discusses the development and applications of the programs, and Volume II is the users manual. Keywords Shell buckling Structural mechanics Imperfection sensitivity and Computer codes.
