Abstract : Analytical methods utilizing the linear bending theory of thin shells are presented which are judged the most useful for determining stresses in submarine pressure hulls. Only axisymmetric deformations are considered, and emphasis is placed on methods that are sufficiently simple to be applied at the practical level. Attention is restricted to analytical solutions for cylindrical, conical, and spherical shells. Efforts have been made to employ a uniform system of notation and sign conventions wherever possible.
