LOBAR BUCKLING OF THIN-WALLED CYLINDRICAL AND TRUNCATED CONICAL SHELLS UNDER EXTERNAL PRESSURES

Numerical solutions have been produced for the asymmetric instability of thin-walled circular cylindrical and truncated conical shells under external pressure. The solutions for the circular cylinder have shown that the assumed buckling configurations of Nash and Kaminsky were quite reasonable for fixed ends. Comparison was also made of the finite-element solution of conical shells with other analyses. From these calculations, it was shown that the numerical solutions were superior to the analytical ones, as the former could be readily applied to vessels of varying thickness or those subjected to unsymmetrical loading or with complex boundary conditions.
