Abstract : The overall buckling of unstiffened cylindrical shells with hemispherical end caps is studied. Numerical results for the buckling load parameter are obtained in terms of the parameters h/a, L/a and n. The theoretical results are compared with a series of experimental results; excellent agreement between theory and experiment is noted. (Author)
