Investigation of the stress-strain state of a finite cylinder under the action of compressive forces


We determine the stresses and displacements formed in a finite cylinder under the action of an elastic ring simulated by uniformly distributed normal forces. For the analysis of the stress-strain state, we use the numerical-analytic least-squares method. It is shown that this method guarantees high accuracy of the solution. The changes in the stresses and displacements are analyzed depending on the radius of the cylinder, its length, and the width of the ring. We obtain two qualitatively different distributions of stresses and displacements.
