USING the general theory of cylindrical shells, expressions have been derived for the maximum bending moment and shearing force in vessels closed at one end and subjected internally to (a) gas pressure, (b) hydrostatic pressure. The method has been used by S. Timoshenko (Theory of Plates and Shells, McGraw‐Hill, pp. 412–3) for the special case where one end of the vessels is built into a rigid foundation.
