Abstract : A method is proposed for achieving complete displacement compatibility between a conical shell of revolution and an enclosed core stiffener when using the discrete-element method of analysis. The equations and matrices (stiffness, mass, and nodal loads) necessary to carry out either static or dynamic analyses of the core-stiffened shell of revolution are derived, and application of the method in the static case is shown by two example problems.
