Abstract : General solutions for the shearing-stress resultant and change in slope of the radome wall are obtained and described. These are the basic functions that are required in the calculation of thermal stresses. They are obtained in the form of infinite series for a bicentric-ogive radome mainbody. Sets of coefficients for the series are determined from recurrence formulas that are well suited to computer programming. In numerical work, two-hundred terms were employed to evaluate all sums at several points along the span of the radome. Two intervals of expansion were found necessary for absolute convergence of the series in the ogival mainbody. (Author)
