Abstract:

The effects of a circular hole on the initial states of uniform stress produced by loading an infinite shallow cylindrical shell by axial tension, internal pressure, and torsion are determined. The linear equations for a thin, shallow cylindrical shell are reduced to a single complex differential equation involving the dimensionless curvature parameter beta. The solution to this equation is written as an infinite series, and a numerical collocation procedure is used to obtain the stresses in the shell for values of beta up to 4. Boundary layer techniques are employed to obtain approximations of the stresses for large values of the parameter beta. Author
