Tension fields in originally curved, thin sheets during shearing stresses

Wagner, H., Ballerstedt, W.

The analysis of the stresses in the sheet and stiffeners is predicated upon the direction of the wrinkles, particularly the tensile stresses (principal stresses). This analysis and the calculation of stresses after buckling form the subject of the present article. It includes: 1) metal cylinders with closely spaced longitudinal stiffeners; 2) metal cylinders with closely spaced transverse rings.
