ITS on Doorsheet Reinforcement

Well, there is no escaping the reinforcement of an opening 2 inches or greater. A door sheet is of course much larger. Regardless of the shell course, a large opening will weaken the area around the opening and would be evident in a 45 degree ripple, so it needs to be stiffened.

On the buckling issue of the shell I would refer to API Bulletin 2U, which I think was last updated in 2004. The root or basis of this rule of thumb on buckling stress is based on one-third or 1/3 of yield stress which means anything over that is fair game to a wrinkle or buckle in the shell.

Hope other have more insight...
