Working charts for the stress analysis of elliptic rings

Burke, Walter F (University of Michigan)

This report presents charts which reduce the stress analysis of circular and elliptic rings of uniform cross section subjected to balanced systems of concentrated loads from a statically indeterminate problem to a statically determinate one. To demonstrate the use of the charts in the stress analysis of elliptic rings, an illustrative problem is included.
