  6. The bibliography is split into two parts divided near the end of 2018, each in two different formats: PDF and DOCX Downloadable files pertaining to both Part One and Part Two can be accessed from the Bibliography page or from the links below.

  7. Added the following new Shell Buckling Links:
  8. New videos at Shell Buckling Links:
  9. 25 broken links were removed.
  10. New papers in the Bibliography:
  11. On the home page of shellbuckling.com there used to be six clickable “buttons” at the bottom: HUGEBOSOR4, BIGBOSOR4, BOSOR5, PANDA2, GENOPT and STAGS. On January 19, 2021 we removed these “buttons” and the associated text on the home page. We had previously eliminated the “DOWNLOADS” button by means of which website visitors could download the programs listed above. Therefore, those six buttons, if present, would now represent a “tease”. The six programs are no longer available for download nor are they supported.
