In this paper are derived the expressions for the stresses in a solid cylinder of infinite length caused by the action of an applied radial stress distributed uniformly over a single circumferential ring of finite length on the surface of the cylinder. An example of stresses of this type would be a long solid shaft with a uniform pressure applied on the surface for a short axial length. The practical worth of the results presented in this paper lie in their approximate applications to shrink fits. Test measurements of shaft deformations due to shrink pressures are included to illustrate the application of the theoretical results.
