Abstract

This paper deals with the out-of-plane buckling of annular plate rings in column-supported bins and tanks. The stress distributions in such rings are first examined using a finite element shell analysis. A closed-form solution for the buckling of rings under non-uniform circumferential stresses is then derived. Numerical results from the closed-form solution are compared with those from a finite element shell buckling analysis, and close agreement is found. The significant effect of stress non-uniformity on the buckling predictions is demonstrated. Finally, simplified equations are given which are suitable for structural design purposes, and which closely model the predictions of the more rigorous solution.
