An analysis is developed for bending of a thin circular cylindrical shell under a varying radial line load distributed around the circumference at the center section. The problem is solved by reducing the eighth-order differential equation of thin-shell theory to two approximate fourth-order equations. Deflections, bending stresses, and membrane stresses are evaluated. Both simply supported and clamped ends are considered.
