Abstract
The objective of the work is to develop a capability, based on the finite element method, for predicting the stresses and buckling failure, due to external static and dynamic uniform and non-uniform pressure, of ring stiffened axisymmetric shells and shells with one plane of symmetry and stiffened plates under edge loading. The work shall be accomplished by proper representation of shell geometry, representation of shell behavior and by the development or adaption of methods in the finite element program VAST for solution of the equations characterizing the various phases of linear and nonlinear elastic shell instability. Direct methods for nonlinear analysis and dynamic loading are to be accounted for by the use of the finite element program ADINA.
