Shells And Plates


1. In loading with a force whose value lies between the long-term and instantaneous critical values, a loss of shell stability by rupture takes place at a certain time after loading. This time is naturally taken as the critical one.

2. Numerical estimates show that the level of the initial irregularities has a very great effect on the magnitude of the critical time. Therefore, in a theoretical estimate of the critical time it is necessary to take account of them as accurately as possible.
