Local stress on thin cylindrical shell

  1. Feb 25, 2010 #1

    I have a local stress acting radial on a thin cylindrical plate (see illustration), how can I calculate if the plate will deform/bend?

    I can only find equations for uniform external pressure (Marcel Dekker), but will it be okay when the stress is only local?
