Prediction of the critical buckling load of stiffened composite cylindrical shells with lozenge grid based on the nonlinear vibration analysis
Due to unique properties, grid stiffened composite cylinder shells are used extensively in aviation, marine and automotive industry. In recent decades, several studies are done to predict the critical buckling load of grid stiffened composite cylinder shells without breakdown or failure. Vibration Correlation Technique (VCT) is one of the most important non-destructive methods that based on nonlinear vibration analysis. The aim of this research is the prediction of the critical buckling load of stiffened composite cylinder shells with lozenge grid by using VCT. For this purpose, linear and nonlinear vibration analysis of composite cylindrical shells were performed in different compressive loads by using finite element software ABAQUS, firstly. In the next step, linear buckling critical load was determined by using numerical methods. Then, non-linear critical buckling load of grid stiffened composite cylinder shells was predicted by using VCT. To validate the results of VCT, five composite cylindrical shells were fabricated by using filament winding method with same conditions and was placed under axial compression test. Finally, the critical buckling load was measured experimentally. The results show that the difference between the critical buckling load of VCT with experimental buckling load is less than 3%. This subject implies that VCT is suitable for prediction of critical buckling load of stiffened composite cylinder shells with lozenge grid with very high accuracy.
