Roll No.:- M4CIV 10-05 (v) ABSTRACT Oscillatory instability of shell structures has been a major cause of concern in many branches of engineering. The dynamic instabilities are the result of pulsating time varying loads mainly inertial or thermal in origin. The greatest danger posed by such instabilities is that the failure is very quick and abrupt. In parametric instability the rate of increase in amplitude is generally exponential and thus potentially dangerous, while in typical resonance due to external excitation the rate of increase in response is linear. More over damping reduces the severity of typical resonance, but may only reduce the rate of increase during parametric resonance. Parametric instability occurs over a region of parameter space and not at discrete points. It may occur due to excitation at frequencies remote from the natural frequencies. Researchers have worked in understanding the behavior of such instabilities. With this particular concept in mind, a theoretical formulation has been developed in the present work for the analysis of singly curved surfaces subjected to in plane periodic loading and undergoing parametric excitation. A four noded iso-parametric shell element having five mechanical degrees of freedom per node, using Mindlin and Reisseners shallow shell theory has been developed in MATLAB platform. The first order shear deformation and effect of rotary inertia has been considered. The results obtained by the present FE code for static, free vibration and buckling analysis are verified with the ANSYS finite element software. Parametric instability studies have been carried out for cylindrical shells having different fibre orientations, various geometric properties with different R/a ratio. A generalized Rayleigh proportional damping has been considered for all the cases to study the shift of the stability point with respect to frequency ratio in various cases. The obtained results are discussed in detail and conclusions highlighting the important findings are made.
