A study of cylindrical shells under global bending in the elastic‐plastic range

A study of cylindrical shells under global bending in the elastic‐plastic range Many thin cylindrical shells are used in structural applications in which the dominant loading condition is global bending. Key examples are chimneys, wind turbine towers, tubular piles and tall silos. These structures are generally much thinner than pipelines and tubular structural members, but are often much thicker than the highly imperfection‐sensitive, very thin shells used in tanks and squatter silos. Their thickness lies in an uncomfortable range which is extremely thin for the structural tube community and very thick for the shell buckling community. The buckling strength of these structures is dominated by extensive plasticity, but the fully plastic state is usually far from being attained. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Steel Construction: Design and Research Wiley

Abstract

Many thin cylindrical shells are used in structural applications in which the dominant loading condition is global bending. Key examples are chimneys, wind turbine towers, tubular piles and tall silos. These structures are generally much thinner than pipelines and tubular structural members, but are often much thicker than the highly imperfection‐sensitive, very thin shells used in tanks and squatter silos. Their thickness lies in an uncomfortable range which is extremely thin for the structural tube community and very thick for the shell buckling community. The buckling strength of these structures is dominated by extensive plasticity, but the fully plastic state is usually far from being attained.
