THE purpose of the present report is to present tables and to summarize formulas which are required for the analysis of circular rings, under forces in the plane of the ring or out of the plane. Usually, rings which are redundant structures are calculated by considering strain due to bending only. It is shown that for the stress distribution in a circular ring under given loads, the solution introducing strains due to shearing and axial loads is the same as the solution conventionally used.
