Axial cracks on both sides of a hole in a cylindrical shell

  • N. Ishihama


The problem of a cylindrical shallow shell with axial cracks on both sides of a hole is investigated by use of the expressions in the context of Muskhelishvili's complex potentials by means of comformal mapping. The values of bending stresses and displacements around a hole for the shell are shown in Tables and variation of moment and stress intensity factors at the tip of the cracks are also illustrated.

On étudie le problème d'un réservoir cylindrique à paroi mince présentant des fissures axiales de chaque côté d'un orifice, en utilisant les expressions développées par représentation conforme dans le contexte des potentiels complexes de Muskhelishvili.

On fait apparaître dans des tables les valeurs des contraintes de flexion et les déplacements dans la portion du réservoir autour de l'orifice et on montre par ailleurs la variation du moment et des facteurs d'intensité de contraintes à l'extérieur des fissures.
