Superelliptic Shells as new constructive Forms
In the superelliptic shell joined to a circular cylinder bending stresses are absent when it is subjected to uniform pressure.Some geometrical characteristics have been found. Expressions for determining stresses in the shell crest(in the singular point of plane type) are suggested. The problem of a theoretical critical buckling load of an elongated shell supported by frames is studied. A critical buckling load for two shells with different specifications was found experimentally.
