Unformatted text preview: NDER WATER Cylindrical Pressure Vessels
When solving the problems for Section 8.3, assume that the given radius or diameter is an
inside dimension and that all internal pressures are gage pressures. Problem 8.3-1 A scuba tank (see figure) is being designed for an internal pressure of
1600 psi with a factor of safety of 2.0 with respect to yielding. The yield stress of the steel is
35,000 psi in tension and 16,000 psi in shear.
If the diameter of the tank is 7.0 in., what is the minimum required wall thickness? 90 ft ;...
