English abstract:
Following the formulation of the deformation and stability problem on the basis of originally non-comforming triangular curved finite elements with the help of a variational principle with subsidiary conditions, the deformation problem is solved numerically for an existing cooling tower shell. The subsequent stability analysis of this cooling tower shell shows relatively good agreement of the buckling safety computed by means of the finite element method and the minimum of buckling saftey obtained with the help of Mungan's stability criterion.
