Abstract : A set of uncoupled differential equations of equilibrium based on Sanders' assumptions was developed which includes the effects of the prestresses. Both the Sanderstype equations and Donnell's equations are solved for the buckling pressure of shells under laterial and hydrostatic pressure. It is found that restriction of the axial displacement has considerable influence upon the buckling pressure. Moreover, the more rigorous Sanders-type equations yield lower buckling pressures than Donnell's equations. (Author)
