Maximal deflection of cylindrical shells under a concentrated force

  • V. P. Ol'shanskii
Scientific-Technical Section


The article presents a simple formula for calculating the maximal deflection of a circular closed cylindrical shell loaded by a radial concentrated force. It is shown that in the calculation of shells with medium length this formula yields results that are in good agreement with the known solutions in trigonometric series.
