Abstract A theoretical solution has been obtained for the stress distribution throughout a cylindrical specimen loaded in compression, which takes into account different degrees of friction at the end surfaces. To check the solution experimentally, a cylindrical model was constructed from epoxy sheets, with electrical-resistance strain gages embedded between the sheets and also bonded to the cylindrical surface. With the specimen under axial compression, strain measurements were recorded within the elastic range of the epoxy. Reasonable agreement with the theoretical solution was observed for the two types of end conditions. In one case the cylinder was in direct contact with the platens of the testing machine, in the other case a Teflon sheet was placed between the two surfaces.
