3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED

Calculates non-linear stresses in a pressure vessel liner, simulating plastic behaviour on both panels and shear connectors.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

It is assumed that the left-hand end-load will stay constant throughout each loading cycle. Number of panels must be less than or equal to 62.
