Computation of Localized Post Buckling in Long Axially-Compressed Cylindrical Shells

  title={Computation of Localized Post Buckling in Long Axially-Compressed Cylindrical Shells},
  author={John Lord and Alan R. Champneys and G. W. Hunt},
Buckling is investigated of a long thin cylindrical shell under longitudinal compression as modelled by the von KK armm an{Donnell equations. Evidence is reviewed for the buckling being localised to some portion of the axial length. In accordance with this observed behaviour the equations are rst approximated circumferentially by a Galerkin procedure, whereupon cross-symmetric homoclinic solutions of the resulting system of ordinary diierential equations are sought in the axial direction… CONTINUE READING
