Numerical Simulation of the Quasi-Static Axial Compression of the Pseudo-Elastic Phase Transformation Cylindrical Shells
In this paper, the quasi-static axial compression of the pseudo-elastic phase transformation cylindrical shells (PTCS) is systematically investigated experimentally and numerically. Some interesting phenomena and regularities are found and in-depth understanding is gained: (i) static buckling instability properties of the PTCS with different sizes; (ⅱ) the formation and development regularities of the phase transformation hinges (PTHs). The length-diameter ratio (L/D) of the PTCS is closely related to its buckling modes.
