Title

Bending Analysis of a Truncated Conical Shell Subjected to Asymmetric Load

Abstract

Bending analysis of a truncated conical shell of revolution subjected to asymmetrical bending has been undertaken by using an approximate theory similar to the Donnell's theory for cylindrical shells. A method of solution suggested by Budiansky and Radkowski9 has been used in this study. Numerical results obtained from this solution have been compared with those obtained from the literature. The results of bending theory have also been compared with that of membrane theory and it is shown for the type of loading considered here that membrane theory is valid over a large portion of the shell.
