Analytical Investigation Of The Effect Of Material And Geometric Imperfections On Buckling Strength Of Spherical Shells , Rama Krishna Challa

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Spherical shells are extensively used as structural elements. As they are subjected to different loading conditions, compressive membrane forces develop causing failure due to compressive stability. In order that the shells perform their design function adequately, sufficient design margins should exist. These design margins are established by means of experimental tests and numerical analysis. Comparisons between classical, theoretical and experimental results for spherical shells subjected to external pressure loading demonstrated large discrepancies. These discrepancies are attributable to material and geometric imperfections resulting from fabrication methods.;Sufficient design information with respect to the imperfections is required to perform numerical analyses. The ...
