COMPOUND PRESSURE VESSEL A cylinder for a high-pressure compressor having an internal diameter of 25 mm is to be made from a steel grade (E=207 GPa) for which the maximum allowable hoop stress (tensile or compressive) is 400 MPa. There is no limit on the maximum allowable radial stress. a) If the internal pressure is to be 600 MPa, show that a simple cylinder will not be satisfactory. b) Investigate the use of two compounded cylinders to take an internal pressure of 600 MPa, each having a ratio of external to internal diameter of 2 (the inner diameter of the compounded cylinder assembly still is 25 mm), and suggest a suitable radial interference (with tolerances) between the cylinders before compounding. (Hint and Answer: The minimum interface pressure to avoid excessive tensile hoop stress at the bore is 105 MPa. Maximum interface pressure to avoid excessive tensile hoop stress in the outer surface at the interface is 120 MPa, which is lower than the maximum interface pressure to avoid excessive hoop stress at the bore due to compounding alone, namely, 150 MPa.

### What students are saying

• 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.
