Buckling of isotropic and orthotropic cylinders under induced moments

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The buckling of Isotropic and composite cylinders due to induced moments was inves-tigated. The cylinder wall may be of solid or of sandwich construction. Expressions were derived for the critical buckling moment. Numerical examples for aluminum and glass-epoxy composite cylinders are presented which show that induced moments are unlikely to result in buckling of cylinders under conditions which may arise in practice.
