Abstract : The report covers the theoretical analysis of two normally intersecting cylindrical shells having ratios of not greater than 1/3. Both shells are considered to be infinitely long, capped at the ends and subjected to internal pressure. The exact solution of the partial differential equation of Donnell's theory of thin cylindrical shells is obtained in the form of infinite series. Fourier expansions and the method of least square error are employed to satisfy the boundary conditions. Various numerical results are presented. (Author)
