Abstract : Shell-type structures are frequently used in many branches of engineering. One of the types most commonly used is the circular cylindrical shell which finds application as a component of pressure vessels, roofed structures, aircraft and missiles, as well as submarines. Because of this wide-range of application, the approximate theory of the circular cylindrical shell has been highly developed both from the theoretical side and from the standpoint of engineering applications. However, those shell theories are two-dimensional simplifications of three-dimensional elasticity. In the report the elasticity solution of a long circular cylindrical shell subjected to a ring of axially symmetrical concentrated forces acting on the external surface is presented. The solution is obtained by the use of a Fourier integral transform and the inverses are obtained by numerical and asymptotic integrations. The resulting stresses and displacements are then compared to those obtained by using several types of shell theory solutions. (Author)
