NONLINEAR STABILITY ANALYSIS OF PRESSURE-LOADED IMPERFECT STIFFENED CYLINDERS

This paper deals with the buckling of imperfect, thin, circular, cylindrical, stiffened shells under the application of external pressure. The methodology is based on the smeared technique, the Von Karman-Donnell nonlinear kinematic relations, and linearly elastic behavior, and it considers both axisymmetric and symmetric imperfections. Numerical results for various configurations are presented. These include some optimal stiffened configurations which exemplify submarine hull designs for operating depths of 1000 and 3000 ft(305 and 915 m).
