Stability of spherical shells

Abstract:

Recent application of using spheres as carriers of LNG on ships has highlighted a lack of guidance given to the inclusion of imperfections and to the operating con- ditions imposed as a result of the motion of the ship.

Spheres with a radius to thickness ratio of between 450 and 1700 were made by electrodeposition of copper on a wax former. Imperfections of three types were introduced:

  • a) A local flat.
  • b) A zone of reduced curvature.
  • c) A bulge.
