Influence of clamped-clamped boundary conditions on the mechanical stress, strain and deformation analyses of cylindrical sport equipment
Yuhao Yang and Mohammad Arefi

    The higher order shear deformable model and an exact analytical method is used for analytical bending analysis of a cylindrical shell subjected to mechanical loads, in this work. The shell is modelled using sinusoidal bivariate shear strain theory, and the static governing equations are derived using changes in virtual work. The eigenvalue-eigenvector method is used to exactly solve the governing equations for a constrained cylindrical shell The proposed kinematic relation decomposes the radial displacement into bending, shearing and stretching functions. The main advantage of the method presented in this work is the study of the effect of clamping constraints on the local stresses at the ends. Stress, strain, and deformation analysis of shells through thickness and length.
