A pressurized steel tank is constructed with a helical weld that makes an angle α = 55˚ with the longitudinal axis (see figure). The tank has radius r = 1.8 m, thickness t = 20 mm, and internal pressure p = 800 kPa. The steel has Young’s modulus E = 200 GPa and Poison’s ratio 3 . 0 = ν . I. Stresses Circumferential and Longitudinal stresses: Longitudinal stress: Circumferential stress: (Shear stress: ) The corresponding stress element is shown below. Construct the Mohr’s circle : Read coordinates for point A and B : ) 0 , 36 ( A and ) 0 , 72 ( B , plot them on stress plane. Find the midpoint C , whose coordinate is ). 0 , 54 ( C Use C as center, AC (or BC ) as radius, draw Mohr’s circle.
