    Buckling Analysis of a Cylinder With End Caps - Fixtures Help Required

    Alexander Garnett

      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,

       

      Thanks!
