An idealization of a cylindrical pressure vessel with end plates fastened by longitudinal bolts is considered. The initial axial preload is restricted to be below the load necessary to begin plastic flow and the bolting is assumed elastic throughout the application of pressure. The elastic solution is obtained and the plastic solution may be found by a numerical integration. An illustrative problem is included.
