Abstract:

The deformation and complete stress distribution are determined for each of the following edgeloaded thin shells 1 a right circular cylinder, 2 a frustum of a right circular cone, and 3 a portion of a sphere. The locations of maximum circumferential and meridional stresses are also found. Equations are developed for discontinuity shear and moment at the following junctions 1 axial change of thickness in a circular cylinder, 2 axial change of thickness in a cone, 3 change of thickness in a portion of a sphere, 4 a cylinder and a cone, 5 a cylinder and a portion of a sphere, 6 a cylinder and a flat head, and 7 a cone and a portion of a sphere.
