Elastic equilibrium of completely aeolotropic cylinders: extension by longitudinal lateral loading and end forces
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 26 February 2010
In the present paper a general solution of the equations of elasticity in complete aeolotropy is found under the assumption that the stresses and therefore the strains are linear in the third cartesian coordinate. This solution is applied to the elastic equilibrium of a completely aeolotropic cylinder, under a distribution of tractions on the lateral surface and resultant forces and couples on the end sections of the cylinder. The problem of extension of a completely aeolotropic cylinder by longitudinal lateral loading and end forces is solved with an application to the elliptic cylinder. The writer hopes to present in later communications applications of this general solution to the following problems: (i) Bending of a completely aeolotropic cylinder by longitudinal lateral loading and end bending couples, (ii) Torsion of a completely aeolotropic cylinder by transverse lateral loading and end twisting couples, (iii) Flexure with shear of a completely aeolotropic cylinder with free lateral surface. Particular cases of (ii) and (iii) were considered by Luxenberg  and Lechnitzky [2, 3].
