Part of the Solid Mechanics and Its Applications book series (SMIA, volume 34)


The nature of the extensional response of anisotropic cylinders, such as helical-wound composite tubes, tinder various end conditions is investigated analytically and experimentally. Of particular interest is the existence of a uniform state of stress under practical testing conditions. Also considered is the influence of end constraint on the stability of thin tubes.
