Impact Buckling of Thin Bars in the Elastic Range Hinged at Both Ends

Description: "Following the development of the well-known differential equations of the problem and their resolution for failure in tension, the bending (transverse) oscillations of an originally not quite straight bar hinged at both ends and subjected to a constant longitudinal force (shock load) are analyzed. To this end the course of the bar form is expanded in a sinusoidal series, after which the investigation is carried through separately for the fundamental oscillation and the (n-1)the higher oscillations. The analysis of the fundamental oscillation distinguishes three cases: shock load lower, equal to, or higher than the Eulerian load" (p. 1).

Compressive and Torsional Buckling of Thin-Wall Cylinders in Yield Region

Description: Note presenting a general set of equilibrium differential equations for the plastic buckling of cylinders, which are based on assumptions that have led to the best agreement between theory and test data on inelastic buckling of flat plates. Test data are presented which indicate satisfactory agreement with the theoretical plasticity-reduction factors in most cases. Some of the topics addressed include compressive buckling and torsional buckling.

A nonlinear theory of bending and buckling of thin elastic shallow spherical shells

Description: The problem of the finite displacement and buckling, of a shallow spherical dome is investigated both theoretically and experimentally. Experimental results seem to indicate that the classical criterion of buckling is applicable to very shallow spherical domes for which the theoretical calculation was made. A transition to energy criterion for higher domes is also indicated.

Bending and buckling of rectangular sandwich plates

The buckling load is calculated for a simply supported plate subjected to edgewise compression. The formulas are evaluated numerically and the results are plotted in a diagram" (p. 1).

The inward bulge type buckling of monocoque cylinders 2: experimental investigation of the buckling in combined bending and compression

Description: This paper is the second part of a series of reports on the inward bulge type buckling of monocoque cylinders. It presents the results of an experimental investigation of buckling in combined bending and compression. In the investigation it was found that the theory developed in part I of the present series predicts the buckling load in combined bending and compression with the same degree of accuracy as the older theory does in pure bending. In the realm covered by the experiments no systematic variation of the parameter N was observed. The analysis of the test results afforded a check on the theories of buckling of a curved panel. The agreement between experiment and theory was reasonably good. In addition, the effect of the end conditions upon the stress distribution under loads and upon initial stresses was investigated.

Compressive buckling of simply supported curved plates and cylinders of sandwich construction

Description: From Summary: "Theoretical solutions are presented for the buckling in uniform axial compression of two types of simply supported curved sandwich plates: the corrugated-core type and the isotropic-core type. The solutions are obtained from a theory for orthotropic curved plates in which deflections due to shear are taken into account. Results are given in the form of equations and curves."

Plastic buckling of a long flat plate under combined shear and longitudinal compression

Description: Report presenting the condition for plastic buckling of a long flat plate under combined shear and longitudinal compression is obtained by using the theory of plastic buckling developed for simple loading, provided the ratio of shear to longitudinal compression is assumed constant during the loading process. A detailed calculation for a number of simply supported plates made of a typical aluminum alloy shows that an approximate algebraic relationship provided in the paper will suffice for determination of buckling stress.

Plastic buckling of extruded composite sections in compression

Description: From Summary: "The theory of plastic buckling, originally derived for individual plates, has been extended to apply to combinations of plates such as H- and Z-sections. The theory has been applied specifically to extruded H-sections of 75S-T6 aluminum alloy; the calculated buckling stresses agree satisfactorily with the stresses obtained experimentally."

A unified theory of plastic buckling of columns and plates

Description: On the basis of modern plasticity considerations, a unified theory of plastic buckling applicable to both columns and plates has been developed. For uniform compression, the theory shows that long columns which bend without appreciable twisting require the tangent modulus and that long flanges which twist without appreciable bending require the secant modulus. Structures that both bend and twist when they buckle require a modulus which is a combination of the secant modulus and the tangent modulus.

Elastic and plastic buckling of simply supported solid-core sandwich plates in compression

Description: From Summary: "A solution is presented for the problem of the compressive buckling of simply supported, flat, rectangular, solid-core sandwich plates stressed either in the elastic range or in the plastic range. Charts for the analysis of long sandwich plates are presented for plates having face materials of 24S-T3 aluminum alloy, 76S-T6 Alclad aluminum alloy, and stainless steel. A comparison of computed and experimental buckling stresses of square solid-core sandwich plates indicates fair agreement between theory and experiment."

Stresses in and general instability of monocoque cylinders with cutouts 8: calculation of the buckling load of cylinders with long symmetric cutout subjected to pure bending

Description: Report presenting a strain-energy theory established for the calculation of the buckling load in pure bending of reinforced monocoque cylinders which have a symmetric cutout on the compression side and buckle according to general-instability patterns. The difference between this theory and other theories is the use of the axial wave length as an additional parameter whose value was determined from a minimum condition.

Buckling tests on eccentrically loaded beam columns

Description: Formulas are obtained for computing the buckling load of rods eccentrically loaded at each end, the computation being extended in particular to the inelastic range. The test results are graphically presented on three sets of curves. Two of these, at least for the elastic range, are independent of the material tested. The third set, which is independent of the material, possesses greater clearness and is therefore used for comparing the test results with the theoretical.

Thermal buckling of plates

Description: "An approximate method, based on large-deflection plate theory, for calculating the deflections of flat or initially imperfect plate subject to thermal buckling is outlined. The method is used to determine the deflections of a simply supported panel subjected to a tentlike temperature distribution over the plate surface. Experimental results for a particular panel are in good agreement with the theoretical results for the range of temperatures and deflections considered in the test" (p. 1).
