The research is centred on isotropic, incompressible hollow cylindrical structure that is deforming under pure azimuthal shear. The mathematical formulation of angular displacement of the structure resulted into a non-linear second order ordinary differential equations. The resulting solutions of the boundary value problems were obtained through software analysis of the angular displacement. The effect of stress components and material parameters on the angular displacement of the structure were illustrated and compared.
