|DESIGN OPTIMISATION OF LAMINATED CYLINDERS FOR MAXIMUM BUCKLING STRENGTH|
CADENCE, Technikon Natal, Durban, South Africa
|Summary||The design optimisation of simply supported laminated circular cylindrical shells subjected to a combination of axial and torsional buckling loads is considered in this paper. The objective is defined as the maximisation of a performance index specified by the sum of the non-dimensionalised weighted loadings, and the effect of cylinder radius, length and weighting are investigated.
