Equations are derived for the radial, tangential, shear, and axial stresses arising in nuclear reactor vessels, thermal shields, and so on, from internal heat generation caused by the absorption of gamma radiation. The heat generation considered behaves as a decaying exponential through the wall of the hollow cylinder and is an arbitrary function of the angle around the axis of the cylinder.
