Abstract : Four cylindrical web-stiffened sandwich models were tested under external hydrostatic pressure. Experimental strains were recorded on both outside and inside shells and compared with theoretical strains computed from existing formula developed at the David Taylor Model Basin. The differences between experimental and theoretical results were within the range of experimental error. (Author)
