by Udo Wittek, Univ Kaiserslautern, Germany,



Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Steel Structures

Abstract:

The aim of this paper was to develop a concept for the design of shells of revolution with different Gaussian curvature using a simplified finite element buckling analysis. A cooling tower shell was used as an example for calculations.
