Abstract:

Power series expansions are employed in the analysis of oval reinforcing rings which are arbitrarily located on the inside or outside of oval cylindrical shells of prescribed cross section. The expansions are in terms of two small geometric parameters which are fixed by specifying the cross section of the ring and the major and minor axis lengths of the oval. Analytical solutions are presented for the case of a uniform radial load. A graphical comparison is made with the results of a relatively lengthy energy solution. In addition, the effect of inside or outside rings is displayed in graphs, where the results are plotted versus the major-to-minor axis ratio. Author
