This report describes the work performed by Lockheed Palo Alto Research Labora tory, Palo Alto, California 94304. The work was sponsored by Air Force Office of Scientific Research, Bolling AFB, Washington, D. C.under Grant F49620-77-C-0l22 and by the Flight Dynamics Laboratory, Air Force Wright Aeronautical Laboratories, Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio under Contract F3361S-76-C-31OS. The work was completed under Task 2307Nl, "BasicResearch in Behavior of Metallic and Composite Components of Airframe Structures". The work was admini stered by Lt. Col. J. D. Morgan (AFOSR) and Dr. N. S. Khot (AFWAL/FIBRA). The contract work was performed between October1977 and December 1980. The technical report was released by the Author in December 1981. Preface Many structures are assembled from parts which are thin. For example, a stiffened plate or cylindrical panel is composed of asheet the thickness of which is small com pared to its length, breadth, and stiffener- spacing, and stiffeners the thickness of which is small compared to their _ heights and lengths. These assembled structures, loaded incompression, can buckle overall, that is sheet and stiffeners can collapse together in a general instability mode; the sheet can buckle locally between stiffeners; the stiffeners can cripple; and a variety of complex bucklinginteractions can occur involving local and overall deformations of both sheet and stiffeners. More complex, built-up structures can buckle in more complex and subtle ways.
`The book is a valuable contribution for engineers ingovernment, industry, and universities who have complex shell bucklingproblems to solve and who have available to them computer programs forthe buckling analysis of shells.' Applied Mechanics Review, 38:8 (1986) `What makes this book unique is that the author has succeeded inproviding a `feel' for shell buckling based on careful mixture oftheoretical, analytical, and numerical procedures. Many of the richlyillustrated examples are written in a tutorial form, aguide-by-example for the modeling and solving of complex of nonlinearproblems. It shows convincingly that the modern structural engineermust have a very thorough understanding of how structures behave if heis to use the advanced computational tools successfully. This book isa must for all those who work in the field of shell stability.'Journal of Applied Mechanics, 53 (1986)
