This paper presents a procedure for the analysis of stresses and displacements in an expansion joint, when the latter is assumed to be a surface of revolution. The analysis as presented employs a method of successive approximations, but, in general, the solution will be rapidly convergent. Possible thermal gradients in the joint are not included in the analysis as given, but may be introduced in the solution.
