Hi Everyone,

Imagine a tube of fabric stretched between two hoops, like the one's seen here..

That is, a cylinder made of an elastic material, under tension.

Is there a name for this shape?

Is there a generic equation describing it?

So far, searching the web I've come up with nothing, but I assume I'm using the wrong vocabulary.

Any tips appreciated!
