Paper Title:
Buckling Analysis and Optimization of Stiffened Cylindrical Shells under Uniform Axial Compression
  Abstract

Thin cylindrical shells are widely used in modern structures. When the structures are under axial compression, inflectional destruction happens early. In order to design reasonable and reliable shell structures, stiffened cylindrical shells are applied in the dissertation, ANSYS, an valid finite element analysis software, is employed to redevelop and set up parameter calculation model, subjected to volume and variables value range restriction, the structure’s critical buckling load is the objective, and the serial linear programming optimization procedure is executed as well as the optimized thickness of shell and the size of stiffeners are gained accordingly. The critical buckling load of the structure is obviously increased after optimization, and the feasibility of this method is validated due to the comparison with the numerical and theoretical result.
