In this work, a general solution for the elastic stress field in a cylindrically anisotropic body, the hollow circular cylinder, under surface tractions which do not vary along the generator and which can be expressed in the form of a Fourier series, is presented. The form of the solution is sufficiently general to permit direct extension to an important class of composite structures, namely, laminated circular cylinders. Some of the peculiar effects of anisotropy are illustrated by the solution of a specific boundary-value problem—a circular hole in a large plate under tension.
