Volume 4, Issue 1 , Summer and Autumn 2014, , Pages 43-54

  Existence of cracks in industrial structures is one of the important causes of their failure, especially when they are subjected to important axial compressive forces that might lead to buckling. Therefore, it must be considered in stress analysis and designing and loading of such structures. In this ...  Read More

Volume 3, Issue 1 , Summer and Autumn 2013, , Pages 13-25

  In this paper, simulation and analysis of thin steel cylindrical shells with elliptical cutouts under oblique loading were studied using finite element method. First, the numerical results were validated by the results of experimental test performed by an INSTRON 8802 servo hydraulic machine. Also, the ...  Read More
