Abstract:

A solution based upon small-deflection theory is presented for the critical shear stress of curved rectangular panels with simply supported edges. Computed curves which cover a wide range of panel dimensions are presented these curves are found to be in good agreement with test results. Estimated curves are also given for panels with clamped edges. A series of papers has been prepared to provide information on the buckling of curved sheet. The problem treated in the present paper, which is a part of a series, is the determination of the critical shear stress of a cylindrically curved rectangular panel. For panels having simply supported edges this problem is solved theoretically see appendix and computed curves are provided for finding the critical shear stress. Estimated results are also given for curved rectangular panels having clamped edges.
