  2. Added CV's and portrait photographs for the following living Shell Buckling People:
  3. Revised the CV's for the following Shell Buckling People:
  4. We have added a total of 60 buckling images to various galleries on the Other Buckling Images page along with new descriptive text for each of the galleries.
  5. We have added 1 new book cover image to the T through Z Book Cover Gallery on the Bibliography page.
    • Theodore R. Tauchert, Energy Principles in Structural Mechanics, Indo American Books, 2007, 400 pages.
  6. Since May 1, 2018 we have added citations and abstracts of many additional papers to the long and downloadable “full bibliography” file available in “PDF” and/or “DOCX” formats on the Shell Buckling Bibliography section of this website. This long downloadable “full bibliography” file now has about 9600 pages and continues to be a work in progress. At the date of my last update notice, May 1, 2018, there were about 1500 pages fewer than now exist; therefore, many thousands of additional citations have been added during the past three months. The new citations were found following the search strategy introduced in May 2017 except that many journals were added to the original list of journals to be searched for “buckling/vibration” papers. Papers from 2017 and on are queried for "buckling vibration" in the original journals listed plus in the following additional journals:

    • ASME Journal of Pressure Vessel Technology
    • Advances in Structural Engineering
    • Archive of Applied Mechanics
    • Meccanica
    • Latin American Journal of Solids and Structures
    • Computational Mechanics
    • Structural Engineering and Mechanics
    • Mechanics of Composite Materials
    • Mechanics of Advanced Materials and Structures
    • Advanced Composite Materials

    • Journal of Applied Mechanical Engineering
    • International Journal of Applied Mechanics and Engineering
    • Thin Solid Films
    • Extreme Mechanics Letters
    • Proceedings of the Royal Society Series A
    • Applied Physics Letters

    You can search the “full bibliography” file in order to compile preliminary lists of relevant references you may want to add at the end of a paper on shell buckling/vibration that you intend to write.

    In view of the somewhat broader coverage of the “shell buckling/vibration” field, I have modified the title of the 9600-page bibliography. The new title is:

    Many references about buckling, wrinkling, crushing, crippling, crumpling, creasing, kinking, dimpling, folding, vibration, dynamic response and optimization of membranes, films, sheets, plates, panels, shells, tubes, nanotubes, pipes, thin-walled beam-columns, sandwich structures and soft structures.
  7. Added the following new Shell Buckling Link:

  6. Many additional citations and abstracts of papers were added to the long and downloadable full bibliography file available in PDF and DOCX formats in the Bibliography section. This file now has about 8200 pages and continues to be a work in progress. At the date of my last notice, November 1, 2017, there were about 2200 pages fewer than now exist; therefore, many additional citations have been added during the past three months.

  5. Many additional citations and abstracts of papers were added to the long and downloadable full bibliography file available in PDF and DOCX formats in the Bibliography section. This file now has about 4950 pages and continues to be a work in progress. At the date of my last notice, July 18, 2016, there were about 450 pages fewer than now exist; therefore, many additional citations have been added during the past couple of months. You can search the huge bibliography file in order to compile preliminary lists of relevant references you may want to add at the end of a paper on shell buckling that you intend to write. If you find this material helpful, a reference in your paper to this website would be appreciated. For example: “David Bushnell and William D. Bushnell, shellbuckling.com, 2016.”, for printed text or a link, (http://shellbuckling.com), for online documents.
  6. We have added to the text on the Bibliography page the following link to a “Featured Book”:
  7. Added new Featured Papers to the Bibliography page. This is a “Bushnell” website and the papers corresponding to the links below were mainly created by David Bushnell. Therefore, we have added to the text on the “Bibliography” page of shellbuckling.com additional links to “Featured Papers” as listed here. These additional citations are listed under “Featured Papers”, not because they are extraordinarily deserving but because several of them (being chapters in books or “published” only at AIAA meetings) are hard to find in the literature and therefore seldom cited. These new “Featured Papers” are associated with the computer programs: HUGEBOSOR4, BIGBOSOR4, BOSOR5, PANDA2 and GENOPT. These computer programs were created over many years by David Bushnell. The computer programs are described via eponymous red “Buttons” on the left-hand side of the home page of shellbuckling.com. The software for these programs and documentation are downloadable from the “Downloads” page of shellbuckling.com. (All of the programs and their documentation are included in one giant file: size about 900Mbytes). The additional “Featured Papers” now listed on the “Bibliography” page of shellbuckling.com are as follows:

October 23, 2015

  1. We have added citations and abstracts of many additional papers to the long and downloadable “full bibliography” file available in “PDF” and/or “DOCX” formats on the Shell Buckling Bibliography section of this website. This long downloadable “full bibliography” file now has more than 3600 pages and continues to be a work in progress. As of my last notice, March 10, 2015, there were about 1100 pages fewer than now exist; therefore, many, many additional citations have been added during the past 6 months. You can search the huge bibliography file in order to compile preliminary lists of relevant references you may want to add at the end of a paper on shell buckling that you intend to write. We have also added many citations pertaining to fluid-structure interaction. These new citations occur near the end of the long bibliography file. Search that file for the string of characters, “papers on fluid-structure interaction” to find the beginning of the “fluid-structure” section.
  2. We have added several shell buckling images to most of the galleries in Other Buckling Images on this website. In particular, we have added many images to the Art and Architecture gallery, including a series of pictures of large buildings with shell-like roofs made of reinforced concrete, a series of images pertaining to collapse of three buildings in the World Trade Center complex in New York City in 2001, and a series of images pertaining to collapse of a section of Terminal 2E of the Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris in 2004. We have also added many images to the Other Topics gallery and have reorganized that gallery to make the sequence somewhat more logical. We have also added several images to each of most of the other galleries (Unstiffened Cylinders and Plates, Stiffened Cylinders and Panels, Non-Cylinders, Compound Structures, Prismatic Shells, Nanotubes, Soft Shells and Membranes, and Sandwich Shells). We have added images pertaining to fluid-structure interaction, in particular images pertaining to the response to underwater shock of thin-walled structures (Unstiffened Cylinders and Plates, Stiffened Cylinders and Panels, Non-Cylinders, and Compound Structures).
  3. We have added portraits/CVs of many shell buckling people to The Living gallery on the Shell Buckling People section of the website, and we have transferred a few from The Living to The Deceased.
  4. We have added shell buckling images to several of the CVs of Shell Buckling People. For an example, see the CV you can download via the link, Dr. David Bushnell, listed on the Shell Buckling People screen under the heading, “Living (In alphabetical order…”). If you would like your CV modified in an analogous way by the addition of a particular image in one of your papers, please send me that image with a caption and complete citation of its source. Email to .
  5. We have added several new links to shell buckling activity on the Shell Buckling Links section of the website.
  6. We have added several images of book covers to the Book Cover Gallery on the Shell Buckling Bibliography section of the website.
