Nonlinear Bending of the Block Spherical Reticulated Shells with Damage under the Transverse Load


Based on theory of Lematire’s equivalent strain of the damage and with the damage of bars of the block reticulated spherical shell, the nonlinear bending problem of the block reticulated shells considering damage with rectangular bottom was studied under the boundary condition of moved fixed-edges based on the nonlinear deformation foundational equations. The trigonometric series solution satisfies boundary condition of the deflection was derived firstly. The stress function was solved by substitution of the solution into the nonlinear compatibility equation and the nonlinear characteristic formula of the loads and the deflection was obtained by the energy equation. Then the critical point was given. The critical load was given by the characteristic curves. The nonlinear characteristic formula in the paper can be reference by the engineering designers. The effect of the damage of the structure can be considered
