What would you call this shape?

Not the shape in green, I mean the entire object.

How about "Figure 1"? :) – Cam McLeman Jan 3 '12 at 20:59
I would call it a section of a cylinder given by two planes, but that is just me. Maybe there is a more specific name. – Eric Naslund Jan 3 '12 at 21:00

@Pierre-Yves: I think the vertical line on the right is to indicate that the "shape" in question is the cylindrical section (the volume), not the curve that is the union of the two circles. – Cam McLeman Jan 3 '12 at 21:06
Dear @Cam: I think you're right, but I'll leave the comment, because I had fun writing it... Thanks anyway! - I upvoted your comment: LOL – Pierre-Yves Gaillard Jan 3 '12 at 21:14

This is the special case where $a=0$ and $b=2R$. – Robert Israel Jan 3 '12 at 22:42
