Abstract : An asymptotic expansion procedure is applied to the analysis of a typical bay in a hydrostatically loaded, ring-reinforced, non-circular cylinder. The existence of two distinct characteristic lengths is used in the construction of two asymptotic series which, when combined, form the total solution. The procedure is similar to that proposed by E. Reissner for circular cylinders. The leading terms in the expansions for all stress resultants and deflections are obtained explicitly, and numerical results are compared to available theoretical and experimental data. (Author)
