1 1 Aerospace Structures and Materials: Postscript on Crippling Dr. Tom Dragone Orbital Sciences Corporation

2 2 Buckling / Crippling Interaction Long Column Length Critical Euler Buckling Applies Short Column Cross Section Critical Crippling Applies What if the column is somewhere in between?

3 3 Buckling / Crippling Interaction Radius of Gyration = I/A Long Column Short Column

4 4 Buckling / Crippling Interaction Long Column Short Column Increasing Fcc Johnson-Euler Curves

5 5 Aerospace Structures and Materials: Compression Panel Design Dr. Tom Dragone Orbital Sciences Corporation

6 6 Compression Panel Design Stability Equation is Analogous to Euler Buckling: K depends on End Conditions (Hinged vs Clamped vs Free) Geometry (a/b) Load Type (Compression vs Shear) depends on material plasticity

7 7 End Effects COLUMN 2 Sides Restrained FLANGE 3 Sides Restrained PANEL 4 Sides Restrained

8 8 Geometry Effects LOW ASPECT RATIO Single Buckling Wave HIGH ASPECT RATIO Multiple Buckling Waves

9 9 Loading Effects COMPRESSION Symmetric Buckling Waves SHEAR Skewed Buckling Waves BENDING Offset Buckling Waves

10 10 Flat Panel Compression Buckling High Aspect Ratio –Lower bucking stress From Fig Clamped Pinned Free Less Restraint –Lower buckling stress –Clamp->Hinge->Free

11 11 Plasticity Effects Buckling Resisted by Bending Stress Yielding Limits Bending Stress and Reduces Buckling Resistance Peak Panel Stress is Much Higher than Average Stress Local Yielding Occurs Even if Average Stress < Yield Stress True Buckling Stress < Elastic Buckling Stress Accounted for by is Different for Comp vs Shear is Depends on Material Plastic Buckling Stress Elastic Buckling Stress From Equation

12 12 Flat Panel Shear Buckling From Fig From Fig

13 13 Curved Panel Compression Curvature Helps Resist Buckling From Fig Flat PlateHighly Curved Panel

14 14 Local Buckling Instability of the Free Segments of Stringers, Frames, Longerons, Beams, Columns Can Be Predicted by Treating the Segment as a Long Panel (a/b>>1) with a Single Free Edge L bfbf Clamped Free HH

15 15 Combined Loading Implication: –Cannot use typical margin calculation –Must use graphical method (or numerical) What if:Will structure fail? RsRs RcRc 1.0 Define Stress Ratios: Absolute: R c =1 R s =1 Linear: R c + R s = 1 Actual: R c 2 + R s = 1

16 16 Combined Shear / Compression

17 17 Skin-Stringer Panels

18 18 Skin-Stringer Panels SkinStringer Flange Web

19 19 Skin-Stringer Panels So far, we have treated skin-stringer panels as independent elements Skin Buckling Between Stringers => Panel with Hinged Ends Stringer Column Buckling => Euler Buckling Stringer Flange Buckling => Local Long Panel Buckling Stringer Crippling => Crippling Failure There are other failure modes to consider

20 20 Combined Panel Failure Modes

21 21 Skin-Stringer Panel Design Proper Design of Skin-Stringer Panels Can Increase Buckling Strength No Stringers Actual Buckling Stress Hinged Panel Buckling Stress Lateral / Torsional Instability Stiff Stringer / Thin Skin Skin Buckling with Clamped Ends Mode Change

22 22 IsoGrid Panels Skin-Stringer Panels –Very Weight Efficient –Resist Loads in One Direction Only –Weak in Transverse Direction Sandwich Panels –Bidirectional Strength/Stiffness –Interior Cannot Be Inspected Isogrid Construction –Isotropic In-Plane Strength and Stiffness –Can Be Easily Inspected
