This lesson covers the theoretical and practical aspects of studying the buckling of cylindrical shells. It delves into the reasons for focusing on cylindrical shells, the special cases, and brief formulations for their buckling. The lesson also explains the reduction of partial differential equations for the cylindrical shell case and the impact of different boundary conditions. It further discusses the causes of buckling in a cylinder, such as axial stress, lateral load, thermal load, and torque. The lesson also highlights the importance of error-free theoretical formulation in programming and provides a detailed explanation of how to solve the buckling of a cylindrical shell subjected to different load cases.
