Optimized Wall Thickness of Shells of Revolutionby Udo Wittek, Univ Kaiserslautern, Germany,
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.
