Equations are developed for determining radial deflections in thin elastic circular rings which are subjected to any number of radial load sets or repeated distributed radial load functions; where within each set or repeated function, the loads are equal in magnitude, in sense, and in spacing. Reference is made to a previous paper by the authors [1] in which formulations were presented enabling the determination of internal loads in such loaded rings, a necessary prerequisite for deformation analysis. Examples requiring necessary computer solutions are included.
