Thermal stresses in cylinders, perfectly insulated on the outside and subjected to internal heat generation due to γ-ray radiation, are considered. Numerical values for the governing stress are presented up to q = 7 and η = 100. The asymptotic values are indicated, which permits the treatment of any problem of practical interest. Three simplified solutions, containing only elementary functions, are evaluated. These approximations are found to be surprisingly accurate, at least one of them being of sufficient engineering accuracy over the entire range of variables.
