The problem of a transversally isotropic circular cylindrical shell subjected to periodically spaced, axisymmetric band loads is investigated. The three-dimensional elasticity solution is obtained and stresses and displacements are evaluated for values of the modulus ratio equal to two, five and ten. Also presented are expressions for the stresses and displacements obtained by use of a thin orthotropic shell theory. The results are compared to determine the effects of a change in modulus ratio on the stresses and displacements of the cylinder and the accuracy of the shell theory. A detailed analysis of the data is carried out for a ratio of inner to outer shell radii equal to 0.70, a ratio of distance between band loads to outer shell diameter equal to 0.2., and a ratio of band width to distance between band loads of 0.2.
