On the exponential decay of stresses in circular elastic cylinders subject to axisymmetric self-equilibrated end loads


Methods involving energy-decay inequalities are applied to the axisymmetric end problem for a circular elastic cylinder. Explicit lower bounds in terms of Poisson's ratio are obtained for the rate of exponential decay of stresses, and these are compared with results of other authors.
