In this paper, the formulae for elastoplastic stress distribution in layered cylindrical vessel layers with gaps have been provided. These formulae are based on the modified Pimshtein formulae for the elastic stress of layers. Plane strain with ideal elastoplastic model of materials is adopted. A practice example is presented to show how the formulae can be used for elastoplastic stress calculation. The hoop, radial, axial, and Von Mises equivalent stresses are obtained. The calculation result showed that the stress state of layered cylindrical vessel is more complex than that of monobloc cylindrical shell due to the interlayer gaps. The stress distribution is discontinuous. Calculation results obtained theoretically were compared to those obtained by finite element method (FEM). It shows that the results from the proposed formulae are in good agreement with finite element results.
