In this section we will consider the analysis of pressurized structures.
Examples of these structures are found in fuselage of high-flying aircraft
that are required to be pressurized for passenger comfort.
We will consider both monocoque and semi-monocoque pressure vessels. The
method of analysis is confined to plane-stress problems of cylindrical and
spherical pressure vessels with the shell treated as an elastic membrane
incapable of supporting any bending loads.
