Abstract

The problem of the optimal design of a composite shell in creep is formulated. The progressive buckling of a cross-wound reinforced cylindrical shell supported on a viscoelastic core is considered as a particular case. The reinforcement structure and shell thickness corresponding to minimum weight for a given load and service life are found.
