Hello all,


I'm aiming to complete a buckling analysis of a cylinder with ends caps subjected to external pressure.


My question comes as to which fixture to use?


Should I prevent all translation of the faces of the end caps? and then apply the external pressure to cylindrical surface?


All help and theory on the matter is greatly appreciated,
