Abstract : Available theories and test data on buckling of curved plates and shells are reviewed. The test data for torsion and external-pressure loadings are correlated in terms of linear buckling theories for both the elastic and inelastic ranges. The cases which exhibit a marked disagreement between linear theory and test data have been analyzed by a unified semi-empirical approach which is satisfactory for analysis and design purposes. (AN)
