Find the pressure required to crush the ball. Solution: 0 _ po 4! _ 4t_0 DI" 6 N I: 0.0005 m 0' = 95 x10 —2 D”I = 0.0395 m _ 4><0.0005x95X106 = 4.810 MPa 0.0395 — Note: The density of sea water is approximately 1030 kg-‘m’ so its weight is: 1030 kg x9.81£ = 10,1001} 3 m kg m The depth. d. to which the ball would have to be submerged in order to crush it is then: Pressure = weight density x depth 0 2 4.8]0xIO lleim =476m 10,100 N; m' — d: This is a very large value for the depth required to crush a ping pong ball. It is possible that failure would be caused ﬁrst by some other mechanism like wall buckling. Pressure Tanks: 2. A cylindrical pressure tank with hemispherical end caps is to be fabricated from mild steel 3/ 8 in thick. The length of the tank is to be three times the diameter. Find the dimensions of the tank if o.=20 ksi and internal pressure is 500 psi. Gaumbk = 20,000 psi p = 500 psi 1/2 Dolﬂi 2Do Ail/2 Do Solution: Hoop stress is higher than longitudinal stress and thus is the one that limits the design. a = pD’" = w ""°” 2! 2t PDo pt 0 we or o a” W 2! 2’ call + p = pDo 2 21 2!

Two spherical caps, also of wall thickness t are welded to the cylindrical part. If the pressure inside the vessel is p=200psi, ﬁnd the normal stress O'w perpendicular to the weld.

Solution The maximum shear stress is the maximum semi-difference of the principal stresses. In this case, the maximum semi-difference occurs in the cylindrical part and it is at the inside of the vessel, where ol=ﬂ=2°°'24=9,6oopsi t 0.5 2: 2-05 2 2 a, = -p = -200psi Pressure Tanks: 6 A pipe is formed by bolting together parts as the one shown. The internal radius of the pipe is r=20cm and the wall thickness is (=1 .2cn1. While the pipe is subjected to internal pressure ﬁ'om a ﬂuid of p=2,000Pa, ﬁnd the force on each of the 12 bolts that connect the parts.
