This paper presents a general solution for a thin ring under a self-equilibrating loading system comprising any combination of radial, tangential, and moment loads. The formulations are applicable to concentrated loads as well as to distributed load functions. Closed-form solutions are obtained for each case for engineering applications. Comparisons with recent published results for some special cases are demonstrated in some of the sample problems.
