Abstract: 

A new analytical approach to investigate the nonlinear buckling and postbuckling of the sandwich functionally graded circular cylindrical shells reinforced by ring and stringer or spiral stiffeners subjected to external pressure is presented in this paper. By employing the Donnell shell theory, the geometrical nonlinearity in Von Kármán sense and developed Lekhnitskii’s smeared stiffener technique, the governing equations of sandwich functionally graded circular cylindrical shells are derived. Resulting equations are solved by applying the Galerkin method to obtain the explicit expression of critical buckling external pressure load and postbuckling load–deflection curve. Effects of spiral stiffeners, thermal environment, external pressure, and geometrical parameters on nonlinear buckling behavior of sandwich functionally graded circular cylindrical shells are shown in numerical results.
