Civil Engineering ⇒ Topic : Thin walled cylinder
|Thin walled cylindrical vessels are used to
store fluids under pressure upto less than 2500
kg/cm2. Beyond this pressure vessels used in a
way. The thickness of thin walled cylinder is
Due to internal pressure in the thin walled cylinder the three types of stresses may be observed
1. Hoop or circumferential stress acting across the longitudinal section.
2. Longitudinal stress acting across the section perpendicular to the longitudinal section.
3. Radial stress acting radially, being too small and can be ignored.
These three types of stresses are mutually perpendicular to the area.
