Paper Abstract

This paper contains the results of several investigations conducted by the author with photoelastic circular cylindrical shells under axial compression. The onset of instability and the subsequent buckling process have been analyzed using high speed photography to record change in the photoelastic isoclinic patterns. Both qualitative and quantitative results are presented concerning the inception of buckling which have never been achieved by other means. The application of high speed photography to the photoelastic analysis of some structural stability problems is demonstrated and results compared with reflected light techniques and mechanical measurements.
