Abstract:
This paper uses the tables and methods of solution described in ASCE "Manual of Engineering Practice" No. 31 to investigate the effects of an edge beam on the stresses in a single simply supported, cylindrical shell. It concerns a solution heretofore not adequately presented in engineering literature, since it considers the vertical, horizontal, and torsional stiffness of the edge beam. This paper uses the tables and methods of solution described in ASCE Manual of Engineering Practice No. 31 to investigate the effects of an edge beam on the stresses in a single simply supported, cylindrical shell. It concerns a solution heretofore not adequately presented in engineering literature, since it considers the vertical, horizontal, and torsional stiffness of the edge beam. Four kinds of line loads are introduced and their value obtained by equating four kinds of displacements in the shell and the edge beam. The displace-ments of the shell are calculated by means of the tables presented in the manual. Expressions for displacements of the edge beam are developed. A numerical example is given and its results are compared with those obtained in the manual.
