Compression of closed thin inflatable cylindrical shell column filled with air: FEA tutorial

Introduction

This is a tutorial of buckling analysis of closed thin cylindrical shell filled with air. The cylindrical shell is acting as column. It means a compressive load is acting on the top of vertically standing cylindrical shell which contains air inside.

FEA in abaqus tutorial: buckling and post-buckling analysis of thin cylindrical shell

Introduction

This tutorial gives an overview of the process of buckling and post buckling analysis in abaqus. To demonstrate the process, I am using a cylindrical shell. This shell stands vertical and acts as column as shown in Figure 1(a) below. Please note here that all the dimensions used here are in SI units.
