This paper presents an analysis of the stress field caused by the contact between kiln tyre and its supporting rollers. The analysis is simplified to the problem of the contact between full cylindrical bodies having parallel axes, and performed using both analytical solution and finite element simulation. Contact force is calculated assuming that the kiln is a simply supported, indeterminate beam subjected to statical and symmetrical loads. The results obtained give a promising sign for
