On the dynamic buckling of lightly damped cylindrical shells modulated by a periodic load

  • AM Ette


The dynamic buckling load of finite imperfect, lightly but viscously damped cylindrical shells subjected to a periodic load, is determined using the technique of multiple scaling (two-timing) regular perturbation analysis. The geometric imperfection, assumed deterministic, are also assumed small and are expanded in a double Fourier series. The dynamic buckling load is obtained asymptotically and the result is found to be implicit in the load parameter.
