A stress analysis of fiber-reinforced composite cylinders and cylindrical segments is presented. The analysis applies to thin as well as to thick walled cylinders with no restriction on fiber orientation, other than that an individual fiber must remain at the same radial distance from the axis. The cylinder may be subjected to hygrothermal and mechanical loads which may vary in the radial and circumferential, but not in the axial directions. Equations are derived which can be used to calculate the displacements, strains and stresses inside the material.
