The characteristics of composites associated with the essential anisotropy of the reinforcing fibers are studied. The effect of distortion and pretensioning of the reinforcement on the axisymmetricity of the strain field, the moduli of elasticity, and the strength in the direction of the fibers under external and internal pressure are investigated with allowance for the high compliance of the material in the transverse direction. Numerical estimates are obtained for the moduli of elasticity Eθ and Er, expansion coefficient αθ and αr, and initial temperature stresses σ r 0 and σ θ 0 for a model material. The dependence of the bursting pressure on the thickness of the rings is described and strength criteria are formulated. In all the problems considered it is necessary to make allowance for the high compliance of the composites in the transverse direction.
