An Analytic Solution of Length-Limited Thin-Walled Cylindrical Shells under Non-Axisymmetric Uniform Line Load and Concentrated Load
Solution for length-limited thin-walled cylindrical shells' deformation and stress state under non-axisymmetric uniform line load and concentrated load conditions, such as containments of rail guns, is a common engineering problem. Based on fundamental equations of the above problem, load function and displacement function are presented, and displacement and stress analytic solutions are obtained by Galerkin Method in this paper. The analytical solutions are verified by comparing them with ANSYS numerical solutions of an example problem. The results of this paper can be served as a reference for analytic solutions and engineering designs of non-axisymmetric cylindrical shells.
