Abstract : Experimental results obtained with 31 nickel circular cylindrical shell specimens are evaluated in the light of the theory. The test results have already been reported in SUDAAR No. 415. The experimental creep buckling times obtained in axial compression at a temperature of 650F were found to be in reasonable agreement with the theoretical formulas. (Author)
