Vibration Correlation Technique for Cylindrical Structural Safety Assessment
Summary of the Doctoral Thesis
Eduards Skuķis, Riga Technical University, Latvia
In the Doctoral Thesis, the vibration correlation technique was developed as a non-destructive test method for evaluating the critical load of shells. Nondestructive methods for calculating the buckling load of imperfection sensitive thin-walled structures are one of the most important techniques for the validation of new structures and numerical models of large-scale aerospace structures. The vibration correlation technique (VCT) allows determining the buckling load for several types of structures without reaching the instability point.
