Description:Due to the inherent properties of thin shelled metal structures, buckling is the main cause of failure and is therefore a topic of great concern and interest. This book is the assimilation of a wealth of recent research, experience and knowledge on the subject. Previously scattered information is made available in a concise, convenient and easy-to-understand form and state of the art research findings are thoroughly examined. This book is relevant to those involved with such structures as: aircraft, missiles, submarines, silos, tanks, pipelines, chimneys and offshore platforms.
