Abstract

The effect of two interacting localized axisymmetric initial GEOMETRIC imperfections on SHELL BUCKLING STRENGTH UNDER axial compression is analyzed by MEANS OF the finite element method. A statistical approach based on the Taguchi method is used to study the relative influence of the intervening factors ON THE BUCKLING LOAD Reduction. It is shown BY COMPARISION WITH THE SINGLE IMPERFECTION CASE that further diminution of THE CRITICAL load IS obtained.
