Six scalar equations, required to determine components of indeterminate moments and forces in loaded or distorted elastic rings, are derived using vector algebra; equations; analogy for analysis of coplanar rings, or analogy using single elastic centroid in space for noncoplanar rings; expressions are easily converted to any orthogonal coordinate system.
