Abstract

"The behavior of thin and moderately thick-walled tubes under various types of loadings has been a major problem of several leading industries for many years. Predominant among these, and the one for which this thesis was primarily undertaken, is the oil industry. The problem attacked in this thesis, however, is not limited to that industry alone, having ample application in industries that are sub-marine in nature, or any industry in which the application of external pressures on equipment is likely to be responsible for buckling failures...In this thesis, the problem of finding the effect of bending on the collapsing pressure of a thin-walled tube subjected to uniform external pressure will be attacked. The theory of elasticity will be used exclusively and failure will be assumed to have taken place as soon as the proportional limit has been exceeded"--Introduction, page 1-2.
