It is shown that stress intensity solutions for axisymmetric cracks in thin-walled cylinders may be obtained for any prescribed axial stress distribution from plane strain solutions. This approach is illustrated by comparing solutions for internal circumferential cracks in several axial stress fields with numerical solutions for axisymmetric cracks. It may also be applied to external axisymmetric cracks.
