Optimal winding of filament-wound reinforced plastic shells designed to resist buckling under external pressure or axial compression

  • V. I. Mikisheva


The optimal method of winding the reinforcement of thin cylindrical shells subjected to external pressure or axial loading is investigated. Various types of winding — normal, simple oblique, crossed, and isotropic — are considered. An approximate formula is obtained for the critical external pressure. This formula is used to analyze the possibility of raising the critical load by adopting oblique winding. In the case of axial compression different buckling modes are examined and the optimal winding determined.
