Unformatted text preview: • compute stresses in spherical and cylindrical thinwalled pressure vessels; • explain the concept of stress transformation; • define plane stress; • describe a state of plane stress using a 2D stress element; • compute the stress components describing a given stress state in a rotated coordinate system; • calculate the maximum normal and shear stresses at a point for a given stress state and compute the orientations where those stresses are found; • compute the maximum stresses in a structure under combinations of different loading modes (axial loading, torsion, bending, pressurization);...
