Stability of cylindrical shells subjected to combined axial compression and internal pressure under creep conditions

  • L. M. Kurshin
  • V. T. Shcherbakov


The critical strain of a cylindrical shell subjected to combined axial compression and internal pressure is computed under creep conditions. A method is proposed to determine values of the initial deflections by means of elastic shell test data for a creep analysis of shells. Data of an experimental investigation of the creep stability of shells are presented, which are compared with the results of the computation.
