A previous approximate analysis of the subject problem is modified in This paper by including terms which had previously been neglected in the strain energy integral. The governing equations for the displacements are expressed in uncoupled form and a Frrobenius type solution is obtained. By using a strain related parameter as the independent variable, the complete load deflection curve of the cap is generated without recource to numerical iteration procedures. Author
