    Problem

    Determine the strains in thick walled cylindrical vessel with inside diameter 1000 mm and outside diameter of 1400 mm. The vessel is subjected to a pressure of 35 MPa, and an axial stress of 100 MPa (E = 207 Gpa, and mu=0.3)

    Solution:

    Assumption: the axial stress of 100 Mpa is considered as an overall axial tensile stress, including the effect of the axial stress due to internal and external pressures.

    We have a particular state where no shear stresses occur. Moreover, the axial stress (denoted as x0) is constant along the cylinder, which simplifies the analysis.
    The other normal ...

    Solution Summary

    The expert determines the strains in thick walled cylindrical vessels with inside diameter. The axial stress is determined in the solution.
