Buckling Analysis of Shells with a Circumferential Crack

Abstract:

Article Preview

In this paper, buckling analysis of cylindrical shells with a circumferential crack is presented. The analyses were performed both numerically using FEM and experimentally. The numerical analyses and experiments were conducted for several crack lengths and radius of curvature, and two different boundary conditions were applied, i.e. simply support and clamp in all sides. The results show the effect of the presence of crack to the critical buckling load of the shells. There are good agreements between experimental and numerical results.
