Buckling of Shells

  • M. Farshad
Part of the Solid Mechanics and Its Applications book series (SMIA, volume 16)


Deformable bodies may become unstable under certain loading conditions and thus have a premature failure. The phenomenon of instability is particularly important for thin shells subjected to compressive forces. In such cases, the loadings which produce instability modes of failure are several orders of magnitudes smaller than the forces causing material collapse of the structure. A special mode of shell instability is the buckling of shells which occurs under certain static or dynamic loading conditions.
