Abstract. Imperfection sensitivity of cylindrical shells subjected to axial compressive load is investigated by means of non-linear buckling analysis and post-buckling analysis. Non-linear buckling analysis involves the determination of the equilibrium path (or load-deflection curve) upto the limit point load by using the Newton-Raphson approach, w...

We present a detailed asymptotic analysis of the point indentation of an unpressurized, spherical elastic shell. Previous analyses of this classic problem have assumed that for sufficiently large indentation depths, such a shell deforms by 'mirror buckling' - a portion of the shell inverts to become a spherical cap with equal but opposite curvature...

We study the axisymmetric response of a complete spherical shell under homogeneous compressive pressure p to an additional point force. For a pressure p below the classical critical buckling pressure pc, indentation by a point force does not lead to spontaneous buckling but an energy barrier has to be overcome. The states at the maximum of the ener...

Atomic defects can be generated relatively easily in phosphorene due to their low formation energies. How these defects affect the buckling behavior of phosphorene nanotubes (PNTs) remains unexplored. Using molecular dynamics simulations, we investigate the effect of vacancies on the buckling properties of PNTs. We show that compared to a pristine...

Elastic spherical shells loaded under uniform pressure are subject to equal and opposite compressive probing forces at their poles to trigger and explore buckling. When the shells support external pressure, buckling is usually axisymmetric; the maximum probing force and the energy barrier the probe must overcome are determined. Applications of the...

... However, real imperfections are mostly unknown in the design phase, thus patterns of imperfections are often assumed to be equivalent ones. Linear buckling mode shapes have sometimes been considered as the base of equivalent imperfections [33,34]. It is always a common practice to consider the imperfection pattern to be the worst that is affined to the lowest eigenmode [33,34]. ...

Recently authors have carried out an extensive literature review in References [1]- [3] on analysis of imperfect (eigen form) cylindrical shells made up of isotropic as well as laminated composite cylindrical shells subjected to axial compressive load, and much emphasis is not made here on the same in order to abridge the proposed paper. The work done by the authors' in Ref. [2] on analysis of cylindrical shells is only restricted to axial compressive load only and is a major source of motivation to pursue the proposed research work with an endeavor to understand the post-buckling behavior of cylindrical shells with other forms of fundamental loading. ...

In present work, post-buckling behavior of imperfect (of eigen form) laminated composite cylindrical shells with different L/D and R/t ratios subjected to axial, bending and torsion loads has been investigated by using an equilibrium path approach in the finite element analysis. The New-ton-Raphson approach as well as the arc-length approach is used to ensure the correctness of the equilibrium paths up to the limit point load. Post-buckling behavior of imperfect cylindrical shells with different L/D and R/t ratios of interest is obtained and the theoretical knock-down factors are reported for the considered cylindrical shells.

Influence of geometric imperfections on postbuckling of layered (laminated) composite cylindrical panels has been performed under axial compression load using finite element code, ANSYS and validated experimentally. Finite element code was initially validated with available literature for performing the further analyses on the panel. Eigen imperfection irregularities were considered for predicting postbuckling loads of layered composite cylindrical panels with SSSS and SFSF boundary conditions with different r/t ratio and ply sequence and compared the results. Glass-polyester laminated cylindrical panels were fabricated and tested using fixture which accommodates different boundary conditions for investigating the postbuckling phenomenon. Experimental postbuckling analysis was carried out to validate the finite element analysis results and found satisfactory. The influence of imperfections with different r/t, stacking sequences with SSSS and SFSF boundary conditions were carried out and compared. As the r/t ratio of the cylindrical panel increases the postbuckling load decreases for a given boundary conditions and with magnitude of imperfection sensitivities. It has been observed that SFSF boundary conditions with angle play layup sequences taking more axial loads than SSSS boundary conditions with same layup sequence and imperfection sensitivity.

In this paper, non-linear buckling performance of a semi-elliptical steel dome under uniform external pressure is investigated numerically and experimentally. Numerical buckling analysis is performed on an ellipsoidal dome with various nonlinearities including geometric (GN) and material non-linearity (MN) to obtain the critical pressure. The option “Arc length method” available in ANSYS is implemented to solve the non-linear differential equations. Further, an experimental testing is performed on the prototype ellipsoidal dome subjected to external hydrostatic pressure to obtain the critical pressure. The effectiveness of the developed numerical modelling is demonstrated by comparing the critical buckling load evaluated using the present non-linear analysis with those available in literature and experimental analysis. Imperfections such as Force Induced Dimple (FID) and eigen affine imperfections are considered in the ellipsoidal dome to investigate their effects on collapse load. Non-linear (NL) buckling analysis of stringer reinforced semi-elliptical dome is performed to investigate the effect of stringers on critical buckling pressure. Various parametric studies are also performed to study the effect of the nature of imperfection, location of imperfection, aspect ratio on critical buckling pressure of the dome. It was observed that an increase in the amplitude of eigen affine imperfection significantly reduces the critical buckling pressure. FID at an apex of the dome causes a reduction in buckling pressure whereas FID located at the middle and bottom of dome do not affect the critical load significantly. It was also demonstrated that stringer reinforcement on semi-elliptical dome without modifying the mass of overall structure significantly increases the critical buckling pressure. The effect of geometric nonlinearity and material nonlinearity on the critical buckling pressure of the semi-elliptical dome is observed to be more significant in stringer reinforced domes.

Covered composites have different preferences over customary materials, for example, high explicit solidness and lightweight. The significant disadvantage is a shortcoming of boundaries among contiguous films, known as the de-lamination phenomenon. Because of de-lamination, a disappointment for the structure of composite can be seen because of the impacts of bury laminar burdens developed, that is once overlapped composites are exposed to outrageous temperatures. If the unforeseen difference in material properties of the covered composite structure is anticipated these issues can be decreased. along with specific bearings in a controllable manner, the individual material organization differs consistently practically reviewed material (FGM) is that sort of material. Consequently, this article presents the limited component displaying and examination of practically reviewed (FG) shell structures under various stacking, for example, mechanical and warm. Moreover, the introduction of investigation of free vibration of structure of FG circular shell. Further, various kinds of shells are considered to contemplate the impacts of significant boundaries on the reactions of FG shell structures. The reactions were acquired for standardized shells of unadulterated metal (EN 31 steel) shells and FG Functionally graded shells which are contrasted. Besides, both modular and static investigations are done to decide the characteristic frequencies, miss happening, strain, longitudinal pressure, and circumferential pressure, individually.
