Instabilities in three-dimensional solids
This thesis presents an investigation of the buckling phenomenon and the consequences of stability theory for three-dimensional, thick solids. The theme structures considered are solid cylinders under axial compression. ...
Computational buckling analysis of cylindrical thin-walled above-ground tanks
This thesis evaluates the stability of cylindrical above-ground steel tanks under imposed support settlements and wind pressures. The tanks considered are representative of tanks constructed in Puerto Rico and in the ...
