Deformation of an anisotropic non-homogeneous cylinder

Nataliya Pankratova
The solution to the problem of stress-deformation state of hollow thick-walled laminated cylinders within the framework of 3D anisotropic elasticity theory is proposed. The author studies the influence of non-homogeneity and anisotropy of elastic properties of materials on the stress level and deformability of wound cylinders. Different layer conjugations, types of loading and cylinder boundary conditions are taken into account. A rational scheme of reinforcement can be found by changing properties of the material.
