Abstract : The stresses in a prototype ring-stiffened conecylinder intersection were investigated for a range of fillet radii, by means of axisymmetric theory and two dimensional photoelasticity. Peak stress concentrations for the various models were found to be between 1.00 and 1.78, for fillet radii between 0.500 inches and 0.062 inches. Results reported in the literature showed good agreement of two and three dimensional stress ratios for symmetric bending and tensile specimens. Furthermore, good correlation was obtained between the stress ratios reported for asymmetric specimens investigated in the present study and for symmetric two dimensional specimens reported in the literature.
