Description of stressstrain curves by three parameters by Walter Ramberg(
Book
)
3 editions published between 1943 and 1947 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A simple formula is suggested for describing the stressstrain curve in terms of three parameters: namely, Young's modulus and two secant yield strengths. Dimensionless charts are derived from this formula for determining the stressstrain curve, the tangent modulus, and the reduced modulus of a material for which these three parameters are given. Comparison with the tensile and compressive data on aluminum alloy, stainlesssteel, and carbonsteel sheet in NACA Technical Note No. 840 indicates that the formula is adequate for most of these materials. The formula does not describe the behavior of alclade sheet, which shows a marked change in slope at low stress. It seems probable that more than three parameters will be necessary to represent such stressstrain curves adequately

Bending of rectangular plates with large deflections by Samuel Levy(
Book
)
4 editions published in 1942 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The solution of von Karman's fundamental equations for large deflections of plates is presented for the case of asimply supported rectangular plate under combined edge compression and lateral loading. Numerical solutions are given for square plates and for rectangular plates with a widthspan ratio of 3:1. The effective widths according to von Karman, Bengston, Marguerre, and Cox and with experimental results by Ramberg, McPherson, and Levy. The deflections for a square plate under lateral pressure are compared with experimental and theoretical results by Kaiser. It is found that the effective widths agree closely with Marguerre's formula and with the experimentally observed values and that the deflections agree with the experimental results and with Kaiser's work

Square plate with clamped edges under normal pressure producing large deflections by Samuel Levy(
Book
)
4 editions published in 1942 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A theoretical analysis is given for the stresses and deflections of a square plate with clamped edges under normal pressure producing large deflections. Values of the bending stress and membrane stress at the center of the plate and at the midpoint of the edge are given for center deflections up to 1.9 times the plate thickness. The shape of the deflected surface is given for low pressures and for the highest pressure considered. Convergence of the solution is considered, and it sis estimated that the possible error is less than 2 percent. The results are compared with the only previous approximate analysis known to the author and agree with 5 percent. They are also shown to compare favorably with the known exact solutions for the long rectangular plate and the circular plate

A simplified method of elasticstability analysis for thin cylindrical shells by
S. B Batdorf(
Book
)
3 editions published in 1947 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A modified form of Donnell's equation for the equilibrium of thin cylindrical shells is derived which is equivalent to Donnell's equation but has certain advantages in physical interpretation and in ease of solution, particularly in the case of shells having clamped edges. The solutioni of this modified equation by means of trigonometric series and its application to a number of problems concerned with the shear buckling stresses of cylindrical shells are discussed. The question of implicit boundary conditions also is considered

Criticalstress of thinwalled cylinders by
S. B Batdorf(
Book
)
4 editions published in 1947 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Empirical design curves are presented for the critical stress of thinwalled cylinders loaded in axial compression. These curves are plotted in terms of the nondimensional parameters of smalldeflection theory and are compared with theoretical curves derived from buckling of cylinders with simply supported and clamped edges. An empirical equation is given for the buckling of cylinders having a lengthradius ratio greater than about 0.75

A Unified theory of plastic buckling of columns and plates by
Elbridge Z Stowell(
Book
)
4 editions published between 1947 and 1948 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
On the basis of modern plasticity considerations, a unified theory of plastic buckling applicable to both columns and plates has been developed. For uniform compression, the theory shows shows that long columns which bend without appreciable twisting require the tangent modulus and that long flanges which twist without appreciable bending require the secant modulus. Structures that both bend and twist when they buckle require a modulus which is a combination of the secant modulus and the tangent modulus

Plastic buckling of simply supported compressed plates by
Richard A Pride(
Book
)
3 editions published in 1949 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Tests were made of 14ST6 aluminumalloy square tubes to determine the critical compressive stress of simply supported flat plates in the plastic range. Excellent agreement is shown with with Stowell's theory for plastic buckling which is based upon a deformation theory of plasticity, close agreement with two other deformationtype theories of plastic buckling and withthe secantmodulus method, and marked disagreement with a buckling theory based upon a flow theory of plasticity

Buckling of thinwalled cylinder under axial compression and internal pressure by Hsu Lo(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1950 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An investigation was made of a thinwalled cylinder under axial compression and various internal pressures to study the effect of the internal pressure on the compressive buckling stress of the cylinder. A theoretical analysis based on a largedeflection theory was also made. The theoretically predicted increase of compressive buckling stress due to internal pressure agrees fairly well with the experimental results

Some investigations of the general instability of stiffened metal cylinders. 8  Stiffened metal cylinders subjected to pure
torsion by Louis G Dunn(
Book
)
3 editions published in 1947 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An experimental investigation of the general instability of reinforced thinwalled metal cylinders was carried out at the California Institute of Technology. The basic parameters involved were the spacing and sectional properties of stiffening elements, the wall thickness, and the diameter of the cylinder. An analysis of the experimental data led to a suitable parameter for estimating the generalinstability stress of reinforced metal cylinders when subjected to pure torsion loading

A Method of calculating the compressive strength of Zstiffened panels that develop local instability by George L Gallaher(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1947 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A method, based on the elastic theory for plate buckling and test results for 24ST aluminumalloy Zstiffened panels, is shown for calculating the compressive strength of Zstiffened panels that develop local instability. This method can be used to calculate the critical compressive stress above, as well as within, the elastic range. For stresses above threefourths the compressive yield stress the method can be used for the approximate determination of the average compressive stress at maximum load

Bending of rectangular plates with large deflections by
Qi Wang(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1948 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This document presents the solution of Von Karman equations for thin plates with large deflections for special cases of rectangular plates of 1.5 and 2.0 lengthwidth ratios under uniform normal pressure. The boundary conditions approximate panels with riveted edges under normal pressure greater than that of the surrounding panels. Center deflections (to twice the plate thickness), membrane stresses, and extremefiber bending stresses are given as functions of the pressure. For small deflections, the results are consistent with those given by Timoshenko
