Stability of cylindrical and conical shells of circular cross section, with simultaneous action of axial compression and external normal pressure


naca-tm-1433
1958


The expressions for the upper limit of critical loads are presented for cylindrical and conical shells under the combined action of uniform compression and isotropic external normal pressure. The differential equations for neutral equilibrium are solved for conical shells with simply supported boundaries.
