Rotation of a meridian from its unloaded position
ψ = 0

Where used:
E = Modulus of Elasticity (lbs/in2)
v = Poisson's ratio
σ1,2 = stress, (lbs/in2)
t = Cylinder thickness, (in)
y = Length of cylinder, (in)
R = Radius, (in)
p = Applied unit load (lbs/in)
ψ = Rotation of a meridian from its unloaded position, positive when that meridional rotation represents an increase in ΔR when y or θ increases;
