In this paper the exact limit pressure is examined for a circular cylindrical shell rigidly supported at both ends. The Tresca yield criterion is assumed, with shear deformation neglected. Exact velocity and stress field equations are derived. As expected, the results show an inverse correlation between the shell length and the yield pressure. Calculations are obtained by introducing a small outward central ring force.
