This paper contains an exact solution for the stress distribution in an elastic ellipsoid rotating about a free axis. The surface of the body is free from boundary stresses. The stresses are expressed with the use of 12 coefficients which have been tabulated for 209 ellipsoids of different shapes. General diagrams give the maximum values of stresses as functions of two shape ratios.
