To increase confidence in the use of the beam method for the analysis of interior cylindrical shells and also provide data for those cases in which the beam method is not applicable, design constants for interior cylindrical shells based on the shell theory are presented. These constants enable the ready evaluation of the internal forces in shells by a few simple multiplications. In addition studies on the effect of the geometry of the shell on the longitudinal distribution stresses are omc;ided/ A Discussion of the effect of continuity enlarges the applicability of the design constants.
