Axially oriented external corrugations on the payload shroud (not to scale)

This is Fig. 1.9b in AIAA Journal, Vol. 19, No. 9, 1981. This is a schematic that shows the external axially oriented corrugations that form part of the wall of the payload shroud shown in the previous slide. The size of the corrugations relative to the curvature of the cylindrical shell is greatly exaggerated in this schematic.
