Abstract: 

Stiffened cylindrical shells are widely used in modern engineering structures, especially in aircraft, oil-transmitting pipeline, spacecraft industry and ocean engineering. Due to the increasing demands for high structures performances, this paper presents the effect of stiffeners on the nonlinear buckling of cylindrical shells with functionally graded (FG) coatings under torsional load. The cylindrical shell is reinforced with external axial stiffeners. The material properties are assumed to vary continuously through the thickness direction. Equilibrium and stability equations for cylindrical shells are derived by using the classical shell theory (CST) with von-Karman nonlinear kinematic relations. Using analytical approach, Galerkin procedure, and the Airy stress function, the resulting equations are employed to obtain the closed-form expression for the critical buckling loads and load–deflection relation. The influences of the number of stiffeners, volume fraction exponent, the thickness of the metal layer, and geometric parameters on the nonlinear buckling behavior of the cylindrical shell with FG coatings are examined in details.
