Abstract:

A method is developed in the present report for calculating the normal displacements in a very thin, pressurized cylindrical shell which is subjected to a concentrated normal load. The shell is treated as a membrane and the solution is obtained in the form of a single or one-dimensional Fourier series, the longitudinal coordinate being taken as the independent variable of the trigonometric terms, with the circumferential coordinate being absorbed into the Fourier coefficients.
