Chapter 8. Axisymmetrically Loaded Members

8.1 Introduction

In the class of axisymmerically loaded members, the fundamental problem may be defined in terms of the radial coordinate. There are numerous practical situations in which the distribution of stress manifests symmetry about an axis. Examples include pressure vessels, compound cylinders, clad reactor elements, chemical reaction vessels, heat exchanger tubes, solid or hollow spherical structures, turbine disks, and components of many other machines used in aerospace to household. This chapter concerns mainly “exact” stress distribution in various axisymmetrically loaded machine and structural components. The methods of mechanics of materials, the theory of elasticity, and finite elements ...
