Estimating the Strength of Layered Cylindrical Shells Under Creep

  • A. Z. Galishin
  • S. N. Sklepus

The stress–strain state and strength of layered hollow cylinders and layered cylindrical shells under creep conditions are determined. The solution for two-layer shells with different thicknesses ratios of layers found using the straight element hypothesis is collated with spatial solutions for axisymmetrically loaded hollow cylinders. The technique of solving the spatial initial–boundary-value problem is based on the combined application of the Ritz and R-function methods and the Runge–Kutta–Merson method for time integration with automatic time step control. The initial–boundary-value problem for shells is also solved using the Runge–Kutta–Merson method in combination with the Runge–Kutta method and Godunov’s discrete orthogonalization method for solving the boundary-value problem at every time step.
