Abstract : The studies briefly described in this report stem from continuing investigations of plates and shells under external loading and elevated temperatures, and include problems of special interest to designers of missiles and aircraft. Chapter 1 discusses the analysis of the buckling and postbuckling of noncircular (oval) cylindrical shells and related experimental investigations, the effects of boundary conditions, and the application of exact finite deformation theory of three-dimensional elasticity to the stability problem of thick-walled cylinders. Chapter 2 describes investigations of stress concentration problems for spherical shells. Chapter 3 discusses investigations of the effects of creep in plate and shell structures. Chapter 4 refers to recent work on wave propagation in layered shells. (Author)
