Abstract

The buckling load capacity of a form of cellular-walled circular cylindrical shell suggested by fossil shell remains is analyzed. Shells under combined loading of axial compression and external pressure are studied. In particular, the effect of high fluid pressure within the cells on the buckling behaviour of the shell is considered. This study demonstrates that shells of this type with pressurized cells exhibit significantly improved stability and thus appear to have potential in engineering applications, particularly in marine situations.
