An analysis is developed for determining stress distributions in orthotropic, web-stiffened sandwich cylinders loaded with external uniform pressure. This analysis is particularly applicable to sandwich pressure hulls for deep-diving submarines, which are constructed with glass-reinforced plastics. The separate values of Poissons ratio and Youngs modulus along the three principal orthogonal axes of the cylinders are used in the equilibrium equations. Graphs are presented to enable rapid determination of hyperbolic and trigonometric stress coefficients. Author
