Problem 5.12-7 Because of foundation settlement, a circular tower is leaning at an angle a to the vertical (see figure). The structural core of the tower is a circular cylinder of height h , outer diameter d 2 , and inner diameter d 1 . For simplicity in the analysis, assume that the weight of the tower is uniformly distributed along the height. Obtain a formula for the maximum permissible angle a if there is to be no tensile stress in the tower.
