Photoelastic study of interrupted pressure vessel frames
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1967-06)
The objective of this thesis is to obtain an understanding of the variation in stress on the cardinal axes of a circular penetration with elliptical reinforcements in a simulated stiffened cylindrical pressure vessel. The ...
Structural design of transverse ring frames
(Cambridge, Massachusetts; Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1967-05)
The relation of the total structure weight of a two-dimensional ring frame to the stress distribution in each of the elements is investigated. The total weight of the two-dimensional structures investigated were a minimum ...
