Stresses in a hollow rotating cylindrically orthotropic tube

  • Matti Tervonen
  • Antti Pramila


Explicit stress distributions for a hollow cylindrically orthotropic tube due to spinning are presented for immediate use in everyday engineering work. The solutions are obtained directly without using the stress function concept. Various boundary condition combinations present in practical applications are considered. Examples are given in order to indicate how the degree of anisotropy influences the stress distributions.
