On the accuracy of the asymptotic theory for cylindrical shells

    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    We study the accuracy of the lowest-order bending theory of shells, derived from an asymptotic expansion of the three-dimensional theory of elasticity, by comparing the results of this theory for a cylindrical shell with clamped ends with the results of a solution to the three-dimensional problem. The results are also compared with those of some commonly used engineering shell theories.
