The response of cracked cylindrical shells

Journal Article (Academic Article)

The linear elastic plane-strain problem of a thin cylindrical shell with any number of cracks equally spaced around the circumference of the shell has been considered. The weakening effects of the cracks have been modeled to induce the bending modes of deformation, and it is possible to draw qualitative and quantitative conclusions about the nature of the bending. The results obtained via Fourier series techniques compare favorably with finite-element analyses of the cracked geometry and provide an economical means of interpolating between and extrapolating from a limited number of finite-element solutions
