This master thesis presents research into buckling of thin hyperboloid shells structures. This type of structure is typically applied as the large cooling towers at coal fired electricity plants. However, modelling cooling towers is not the objective of this research. The objective of this research is to understand the buckling behaviour of shells with negative Gaussian curvature, which cooling towers have. In previous research it was found that negatively curved shells are not very sensitive… Expand


On Introducing Imperfection in the Non-Linear Analysis of Buckling of Thin Shell Structures
This master thesis details the investigation of the effect of geometrical imperfection on thin shell structures using general FEM software packages. The author proposes a finite element based methodExpand
A new theory for the buckling of thin cylinders under axial compression and ending
The results o f experim ents on axial load ing o f cylindrical shells (th in enough to buckle below th e elastic lim it and too short to buckle as Euler colum ns) are n o t in good agree­ m en t wExpand
Self-organization of linear nanochannel networks
A theoretical study has been conducted to explore the mechanics of self-organizing channel networks with dimensions in the submicron range and nanorange. The channels form by the partial release andExpand
A comparison of three algorithms for tracing nonlinear equilibrium paths of structural systems
The relative efficiencies of the Riks/Wempner, Crisfield, and normal flow solution algorithms for tracking nonlinear equilibrium paths of structural systems are compared. It is argued that the normalExpand
Probabilistic resolution of the twentieth century conundrum in elastic stability
Abstract This paper overviews the efforts that led to resolution of the 20th century conundrum in elastic stability of shells. In particular, the dramatic disagreement between theoretical andExpand
