    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,
