Title: Stability of Cylindrical Reinforced Concrete Shells
Author(s): Paul Seide
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 43-62
Keywords: clindrical shells; reinforced concrete;
shells (structural forms); stability.
Abstract:A state-of-the-art review of the stability of cylindrical shells is presented. The copious theoretical results available in the literature are discussed and compared with available experimental results. Reasons for the well-known discrepancies between theory and experiment are indicated and various design formulas which take these discrepancies into account are given. Most of the available experimental data are for linearly elastic metallic or plastic specimens. The behavior of these can differ markedly from the behavior of reinforced concrete structures which are subject to cracking and material nonlinearity. The applicability of linearly elastic shell data to the buckling analysis of concrete shells is discussed briefly on the basis of a comparison of the few test results for reinforced concrete shells with those for elastic shells.
