Scientific and Technical Section


The article considers problems of finding the limit pressure leading to ductile failure of a cylinder with an axial crack. Actual formulas are obtained for a thin-walled shell and for cylinders with considerable thickness. The article shows their satisfactory agreement with the results of full-scale tests.
