This lesson covers the concept of buckling in shells, specifically focusing on the buckling of cylindrical shells under axial compression. It delves into the differences between small deflection theory and finite deflection theory, and how these theories apply to shell buckling. The lesson also discusses the derivation of shell equations, the role of mid-surface forces, and the impact of initial curvature on shell buckling. It further explains the derivation of governing differential equations, the equilibrium of forces in different directions, and the relationship between middle surface force and displacement. The lesson concludes with the stress-strain relation used for thin plates and shells.
