2 2. Learning Outcomes At the end of this chapter, we should be able to:- Tell type of stresses in pressure vessels. Express how pressure cause stresses and change of dimensions in pressure vessels. Explain the reason why additional amount of fluid must be pumped into a vessel to increase its pressure to a desired level.

3 2. Pressure vessels The pressure vessels commonly used in industrial applications consist basically of a few closed shells of simple shape: spherical or cylindrical with hemispherical, conical, ellipsoidal, or flat ends. The shell components are joined together mostly by welding and riveting; sometimes they are bolted together using flanges. In practice, the shell is considered thin if the wall thickness t is small in comparison with the circumferential radius of curvature R θ and the longitudinal radius of curvature R l . If the ratio R θ /t > 10, the shell is considered to be thin shell. This implies that the stresses developed in the shell wall by external loads can be considered to be uniformly distributed over the wall thickness. The shell thickness is designed to keep the maximum stresses below the yield strength of the material.

"Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
