The procedure developed in the paper is based on the theory of thin shells developed by Dr. R. G. Sturm. The formula for determining the allowable out-of-roundness contains two factors, one based on the proportions of the shell and the other based on the properties of the material as measured by the allowable design stress. The procedure is applicable to elevated as well as to room temperatures.
