The effect of discontinuous circumferential end loading of a circular cylinder by equal and equally spaced radial shear forces and moments is investigated by means of Donnell’s equations. Large nonuniform bending effects are found for combinations of circumferential load coverage and cylinder geometry for which an assumption of uniform loading might intuitively be expected to be adequate.
