The finite strain behavior of cylindrical tubes, made of a polynomial compressible material and subjected to the simultaneous action of constant spin and uniform external circumferential shear, is investigated using the theory of finite elasticity. The inner surface of the tube is assumed to be perfectly bonded to a rigid shaft. The governing quasi-linear system of two ordinary differential equations is solved using a shooting method. Numerical results are generated to analyze, qualitatively, the effects of the material constants related to the amount of compressibility of the material and the second strain invariant-dependent behavior to the response of the tubes.
