IMPLOSION STRENGTH OF CYLINDRICAL CONCRETE SHELLS: A COMAPRISON OF THEORETICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS

Large concrete structures are being used as drilling and/or production platforms in the North Sea. These offshore concrete production and storage facilities sustain maximum hydrostatic pressure during submergence for deck installation. The failure mode associated with this critical load condition is termed implosion. This paper describes an analytical technique for determining the implosion strength of concrete cylindrical shells.
