This master thesis presents research into buckling of thin hyperboloid shells structures. This type of structure is typically applied as the large cooling towers at coal fired electricity plants. However, modelling cooling towers is not the objective of this research. The objective of this research is to understand the buckling behaviour of...

This master thesis details the investigation of the effect of geometrical imperfection on thin shell structures using general FEM software packages. The author proposes a finite element based method for the analysis and design of thin shell structures, and describes the implementation of such a procedure on four different FEM packages. The...

To keep up with the growing demand for oil and gas, the oil and gas industry ventures into deeper waters. For a deep water pipeline project, South Stream, a pipeline test program is developed. Part of this program is the investigation of the resistance of an externally pressurised pipeline against local buckling collapse. This is a decisive...
