Abstract

Presence of defects, such as cracks, may affect the buckling behaviour of a cylindrical shell. The buckling behaviour of axially compressed mild steel cylindrical shells with material discontinuity on the flanges is presented in this project. This project is carried out by numerical analysis on eight CAE models and experimental analysis on eight cylindrical shells subjected to axial compression with flanges fully welded on bottom while material discontinuity is introduced on the top flange. The thickness of the cylindrical shells is 2 mm, while the outer diameter is 104 mm. The results of the numerical analysis show that the maximum compressive load of model is decreasing as the percentage of crack length of model is increasing. As conclusion, it is shown in numerical analysis that the higher the percentage of the crack length introduced on the top flange, the lower the maximum compressive load of the model in the analysis.
