Abstract : An experimental program was conducted in order to determine the family of interaction curves for the buckling of unstiffened conical shells under combined axial compression, torsion, and external or internal pressure. Careful experimental technique permitted many repeated buckling tests on the same aluminum-alloy shell without noticeable damage and yielded reliable interaction curves. Results of combined loading tests are presented and compared with linear theory. Test results show that the interaction curve for compression-torsion-pressure loading is defined by superposition of compression-pressure, torsion-pressure and compression-torsion behavior. (Author)
