A class of problems concerned with the determination of the stress field in a circular cylindrical shell with a circular cutout is investigated. Specifically, the following three cases are treated a the shell subjected to a uniformly distributed bending moment around the cutout b the shell subjected to a uniform axial tensile load with a stress-free cutout and c an internally pressurized shell with a uniform transverse shear at the edge of the cutout. By superposition of the results for these cases one may obtain the solution of several other technically important problems. The method employs solution of the Donnell theory of thin shells satisfying the boundary conditions at the circular cutout in a collocation sense. The accuracy and the domain of applicability of the method is demonstrated and discussed. A forthcoming report will present extensive computer calculations for these cases. Author
