Thin cylindrical shells subjected to various types of concentrated loads


Yuan, S. W. (1942) Thin cylindrical shells subjected to various types of concentrated loads. Dissertation (Ph.D.), California Institute of Technology.


The bending of thin cylinder shells based on the general theory of elasticity is of interest not only to the mathematician but also to the engineer. The general theory of the shells has recently been developed to the point that it is now being used by engineers as a basis for the design of this type of structure.
