Tests of ring-stiffened circular cylinders subjected to a transverse shear load

James P. Peterson, Richard G. Updegraff
SEP 1958

Thirty-four circular cylinders stiffened by heavy rings were loaded to failure in combined bending and shear with a transverse shear load. The results are presented in the form of an interaction curve which is applicable to the design of ring-stiffened cylinders that fail as a result of local buckling.
