  1. Added CV's and portrait photographs for the following deceased Shell Buckling People:
  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 buckling images to the following galleries on the Other Buckling Images page along with new descriptive text for each of the galleries.
  5. We have added new book cover images to the Book Cover Gallery on the Bibliography page.

  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 5500 pages and continues to be a work in progress. At the date of my last notice, January 1, 2017, there were about 250 pages fewer than now exist; therefore, many additional citations have been added during the past three 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, 2017.”, for printed text or a link, (http://shellbuckling.com), for online documents.

  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 5300 pages and continues to be a work in progress. At the date of my last notice, October 1, 2016, there were about 300 pages fewer than now exist; therefore, many additional citations have been added during the past three months.

    Most of the newly added citations/abstracts are papers published in the journal, Thin-Walled Structures. Citations and abstracts of papers in that journal, many of which involve buckling, can be found in the “full bibliography” of shellbuckling.com and at Science Direct. Issues of Thin-Walled Structures from 2012 – 2016 have been covered.

    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.

  8. We have corrected the Bibliography page with regard to the 14 Bushnell “Featured Papers”. (See the October 1, 2016 News Item.) Following the October 1, 2016 update: when tested in November these 14 documents were not available. The 14 Bushnell documents that can now be downloaded are as follows:
  9. Added the following new Shell Buckling Links:

  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:
  8. Added the following new Shell Buckling Links:
