Stability Of Filled Cylindrical Shell Columns, Yu Wen Tsao Jan 1973

Stability Of Filled Cylindrical Shell Columns, Yu Wen Tsao

Masters Theses

"This experimental investigation was conducted to study the stability of filled cylindrical shell columns. Two kinds of filler materials, flower clay (florist clay) and silica sand, were investigated. The cylindrical shells were made of 2024-T3 Reynolds aluminum tubing. Uniaxial compressive loading was applied directly to the filler materials through two loading rams, one at each end of the cylinder, (no loading was applied directly to the shell). Tests for investigating the load transmitting characteristics of the filler materials were performed, and the states of the stresses existing in the cylindrical shells were then obtained.

The buckling formula for thin-walled cylindrical ...
