Buckling of Cylindrical Shells


Cylindrical shells in boilers, pressure vessels, and nuclear components are generally designed for internal pressure as well as axial loads and external pressure. Tensile stresses due to internal pressure and axial forces are discussed in Chapters 1 through 3. Compressive stresses due to axial compressive loads and external pressure are discussed here.
