Shells And Plates


1. An analysis has been made of the solution to the problem of the stability of multilayer cylindrical shells having a filler and simple calculation formulas have been obtained for determining the critical forces.

2. The stability of fiberglass-plastic shells with rubber-like fillers has been studied experimentally.

3. Comparative experimental-theoretical studies of critical forces have been made, and the stability coefficients have been ascertained for the shell class under consideration.
