MINIMUM-WEIGHT DESIGN OF STIFFENED CYLINDERS UNDER HYDROSTATIC PRESSURE

A methodology is developed by which one may design a stiffened cylinder of specified material, radius and length such that it can carry safely a given hydrostatic pressure which minimum weight. The solution is accomplished in two stages. First, design charts based on a simplified formulation of the objective function are obtained. Second, these design charts are used to evaluate the design variables. Such an approach enables the designer to introduce needed changes or avoid interaction of failure modes by paying the least weight penalty. Design examples are presented and the results are compared with those obtained by other investigators.
