Document Type: Journal Paper
Bounds for the yield-point load of thin, spherical shells exposed to antisymmetric hydraulic loading on surfaces parallel to the middle surface are given and investigated experimentally. The bounds are in agreement with the test results obtained for one steel dome and one aluminum dome each approximately 6 in. in radius and subjected to a load equipollent to the antisymmetric hydraulic load.
